I have a question for the '69/'70 guys. How high is your gas pedal off the floor? The P.O. had the pedal in my car so high that it was actually higher than the brake pedal. (I'm assuming the wrong throttle cable was used)
I have the shop manual, it says approx. 3.75" from the floor to the pedal face. This still seems high.
What about the relationship between the gas/brake pedal?
Thanks in advance for any/all help!

The bottom of my gas pedal is 2.5" from the floor and sits about 2" lower than the brake pedal.

Thanks Jeff! So, 2.5" off the floor to the back side, or to the face? 2" below the brake pedal sounds about right too. One last question, do you have enough pedal travel at that height? I want to be sure I have WOT if I ever "need" it.... Thanks again!

2.5" to the back side bottom of the pedal pad when the pedal pad is in the relaxed position. I didn't measure to the actual pedal arm which is quite a bit higher. I have plenty of pedal travel.
