Question

Can any tell me if the gas pedal & cable setup off of a 85 camaro will fit a 67? If not what models will work?

I doubt it will work. Try a cable from either a 67-9 Firebird or 68 and newer Nova.

Aren't the early models a rod linkage?

Yes all of the real early first generation camaros were rods. I have seen several that have been convered to the cable setups off of 70's camaro or nova, it works better than the old wore out rod set up. Johnny

I just tie a string around the end of the carb and run it out of the hood by the windshield....I pull on it to make the car go.

Yes Clill is right, again. The first gen 6cyl cars had cable linkage for the throttle. I believe the crossram Z's used the same cable. Its not as critical as you would think. The cable from the cars with similiar body style's should work fine. Nova, Apollo, Omega, ect.

I would just get confused Dave, pull string "a" for gas, string "b" for a left turn, string "c" to turn right! And to really mess me up, I gotta pull more strings to stop(waoooooh pony!!!) I would really be in trouble...

I have seen several posts here and on the chevelle site along the same lines and am starting to wonder; is there a real big advantage other than possibly less moving parts to deal with?
