Brake and Clutch pedals go in the pedal box. Next to the pedal box is mounted the Accelerator Pedal.



The pedal boxes are the all years, and are the same manual & auto. Brake pedal width differs. Brake pedal looks the same RHD and LHD. Clutch pedal differs LHD (pushrod) vs RHD (cable pull). In Oct 1989 they changed the pedals to use a different pads - they may be interchangeable with earlier pedals.
