The clutch pedal on my `69 is higher off the floor than the brake pedal by an inch or so. Seems like in the pictures I've seen of other cars the pedals are the same height. True? If so, how do I fix it? I don't see any adjustments.

If it makes a difference, the car has power disk brakes.

Thanks,

Ron Riley

On both my 69 4-speeed cars, the clutch pedal is higher..which makes sense...there's more throw than the brake pedal.

The brake pedal is lower on all power brake Camaros due to less throw is needed on the linkage.
The factory assembly manual shows it lower too.

Yes, my manual brake/steering car has both at the same level.

Thanks, that's one less thing to obsess about as I try to get the car back together.
