Okay, before you chastise me, hear me out. I've got a '78 Mercury
Zephyr w/302 & automatic C4 tranny. I'd like to convert this car to a
manual tranny. I know that these cars did come with manual trannys, but
I've been unable to find the brake and clutch pedals from a
Zephyr/Fairmont that I need. Remember that these cars were the
beginning of the Fox chassis.
So my question is: Will the pedals from a '79 or so Mustang bolt right
in or do I need to take these from a donor Zephyr/Fairmont? Anybody got
access to an old Ford parts book or a Hollander manual to check it out
or does somebody know from memory? TIA.
Same dash pads, and in my case ('79 black on black bucket seat 302 4 speed)
same tachometer and gauge cluster, same front suspension, rear-end etc.
Mine long ago inherited a '71 351 Cleveland (4 bolt main CJ block, 4bbl
quench heads) toploader 4-speed, 9 inch 3.89/1 traction-loc disc brake
Now talk about a sleeper...
A machine shop nearby has a Fairmont wagon, yellow with wood paneling,
that did 10.60s at Gateway this summer. How freaking cool is that?
Wagons apparently leave hard and true. I just always loved seeing some
homely thing like that SMOKE the 5.0 pimpers (and even Guido in his GN)
at E-Town back when they were the shoite
