Gas Pedals
« on: January 12, 2022, 07:45:13 PM »
In case some people don’t know this already, a Ford 1935-1948 gas pedal is exactly the same as used on Halftrack’s and scout cars. They’re $17.50 brand new listed at this link.

FYI, just got one on eBay from Third Gen Automotive for $17.19. Picture showed the 2 knobs that go in floor board holding pedal from twisting on bolt. When arrived no knobs. Contacted seller and he said these were what vendor was sending him.

I don't recall where I got mine a couple of years ago, but it didn't have the tabs as shown either. I just cut a slit and bent a tab down on each side to engage the holes in the floor. That was easier than sending it back.

Thanks Paul. The early ford store also has the wiper arms and blades for the halftrack. Probably other stuff too.

 I do try to keep these in stock along with other HALF-TRAC parts. You can combine items and save freight. THANKS

That’s what I thought I would do with mine. But the bracket isn’t long enough. I ended up grinding the new bracket off and fitting the old one with a new Clovis pin.
