1969 Rare large brake pedal for auto transmission??

Trying to find a pedal pad that fits.
The brake pedal in our 69 seems too long to fit any of the common brake pedal pads.
We've bought a couple of them for a 69 Camaro, and all of the pads we've seen or tried are too small. From what I've read the camaro shared the same pad as a lot of other GM cars. Our pedal measures about 6-3/8" across at the top. And the bottom measures about 5-5/8" across
Any help on this would be much appreciated !!!

Appears to me after market pedal. I would probably just trim the pedal for the proper size to fit the pad. Or you can easily find original auto brake pedals for cheap

Yeah looks like aftermarket or maybe GMC. You could take the measurements to your bigbox parts shop and search the "HELP" products isle for the replacement that fits.

Without trying to remove the rubber from my original automatic pedal, I say your pedal measures right and is correct, Where did you get the pad and what's the part number?

Maybe its the angle of the pic, but it looks lower than original pedals, maybe from a truck?

Re: 1969 Rare large brake pedal for auto transmission??

I don't know what to tell you except that my brake pedal on a 68 is the same size as yours. Given some measuring tape errors, mine is 6 1/4 across the top 5 1/2 across the bottom and 2" in height.

With these measurements you should be able to tell if your pedal is right, I'm measuring the bottom with the pad still installed

Re: 1969 Rare large brake pedal for auto transmission??

the pedal assembly is an OER part and the pad came from motorcitymusclecars ebay. The pad matches the same pads sold in common parts stores, autozone etc for about $5. So we're going to chalk this up as a aftermarket issue and just trim the pedal a bit. It's an easy fix!


Thanks fellas for the help!
