Pedal Assembly for the '66!

OK...not sure if this is the right forum for this and moderator, please, if this isn't the right forum please feel free to move it wherever it should be. I need to figure out what kind of pedal assembly I should use for the '66 project I have going on!(ZO66) so here is a picture of each of the candidates. If anyone can offer up a better solution or can tell me why any one of these is NOT a good choice please feel free to post:

Stock:

(Hope it's OK to use your photo Bill!)

Wilwood:

Wilwood doesn't make an accelerator pedal that matches their Brake/Clutch set!

Tilton:
Firewall mounted -

About the same cost as the Wilwood!

Floor Mounted -

600 series -

All steel pedals w/ matching accelerator pedal and more than double the cost of the Wilwood!

900 series -

All Aluminum pedals w/ matching accelerator pedal and about 10 times the cost of the Wilwood!

I'm pretty sure as to which one I'm going to choose but I wanted to run this by the board and get some other opinions!

John

Due to lack of interest ...
And the fact that this is a POLL ...
Plus you have already stated you had made your mind up ...

I am sending this to the lounge ...

I would go with the Tilton. They actually engineer their products and constantly improve them.

It's hard for someone to tell you which pedal assy will work best in YOUR car. Go to your car and see which will be easier to mount. One thing, pedals with the pivot on the bottom feel different. Try driving a VW Bug.

OH? I didn't notice that! I have driven a VW before so floor mount doesn't bother me.
