GOSH DARN IT! I meant 54 when I said 55!!!! 55-57 is one style so I wouldn't have meant 55 knowing 57 would be the same. I meant 54, being it was and end to that style. HOWEVER if 54 had it, then 55 Vette would have, wouldn't it? Or did the first Vette have swing pedals in 53? Hmmmm, I should know that but I don't.

That is correct. The first Chevy car with hanging pedals was a '54 with power brakes. Manual brake '54's still had pedals through the floor. And all '55's had hanging pedals.

Kind of a trick question since not ALL '54's had them. Forgive me.

Do you ave a question for us, Brian? If so - shoot.
