hey guys; what are the distinguishing features of E-body 4 speed pedals? are 70 different from 71-74 and are 70-74 interchangeable for all E-body? i was also told that 71-74 B-body pedals look the same. is this true?

here is a link to an ebay auction. the seller told me these are from a 70 cuda. besides the shape of the pedal pad and the curvature of the pedal arms,what telltale signs identify E-body pedals?  thanks, dave

'72-'74 pedals are more square, while '70-'71 pedals are more trapezoid in shape.  I also think something is a bit diff. in the cage like a hole in one or the other; can't recall.  But they will interchange; just won't be correct if the wrong year is in your car.

'70-'71 style:

E-bodies, you have to look at the kink in the brake pedal as well as the shape of the cage.

The B body pedals are larger.   That's what I used.  They were cheaper.  They work fine.  I like the larger pedal and no one knows (except you now of course).

thank you so much for clearing that up. i guess i lucked out this weekend then. i found a set of pedals just like the first pic you posted of 70-71 for $50.00.

the clutch spring and the rod that holds it in the cage were missing. do you have a line on those two pieces. the hole for the rod looks egged out a bit. how is this rod held in place.

thanks, dave

i noticed that the hole in the bracket for the clutch spring rod in this pic from brewer's is also egg shaped,so it sounds like nothing is wrong with my bracket.
