: 4 Speed to auto conversion
Feb 7th, 02, 02:32 PM
I'm restoring a 69 that was originally a 6 cyl. 4 speed. Plans are for a 454 with 700R4.
My question is about changing the pedals. Haven't seen any brake pedals for automatics in the catalogs.
Do I have to go to a junk yard? If so what year and model bowties can donate a brake pedal that will work. Will a brake pedal for an auto fit the brackets for the 4 speed brake pedal or do I need to do some fabricating?

Watch ebay, They're on all the time, and cheap, too. maybe 10-15 bucks. Direct replacement. Just pull the pin on the 4 speed, and replace it with the auto. You might need new bushings, which are available from resto house....probably even a parts store.

Don't do it! You are gonna miss all that shifting!
Just kidding. But if you're flush with cash, put an overdrive Richmond in it...

I am doing just the opposite of you in my 69. I wish you would have said something two days ago. I promised a kid with a 68 that I would trade my brake pedal for his clutch and brake pedals. I think the 67/68 and 69 are slightly different. Do you have a console in your car? If so do you need the shifter and plate for the automatic? Let me know if you want the correct shifter parts for the auto, I have all the parts (the rod that goes from the column down to the shifter linkage, the shifter, cable and plate. Maybe we can swap some parts or something.

Hey Novaderrick, you're in winsted? I'm up north at Mille Lacs Lake. If that Nova pedal will fit maybe we can meet I have relatives in Hutch and may be down there next weekend.
Is the pedal in good shape? Will I need a bushing for it to fit a camaro?
Hey ckaram... you're right I would miss shifting, but I get my fix from driving my 69 chevelle SS.
Hey camaroman7d....I may need some of you're stuff, I'll let you know.
