Pictures of 1933, 3 pedal cars....

Ok peeps, let's see some of those 3 pedal cars.....besides the obvious of removing my center console, I dont know how I'm gonna get clutch, brake, and gas pedals in this! Let alone, getting the brake pedal on the RIGHT side of the steering column! (See pic)

I used the Kugel 180 degree reverse mount behind dash brake/clutch pedal unit on my Willys. I also fabricated a new, smaller transmission tunnel out of fiberglass that allowed more room for the gas pedal. I have more information in my photo journal here:

https://www.hotrodders.com/forum/jou...ge=5&reverse=0

Take a look around entries #93 through #97 (viewed from most recent) where I document the installation.

I've also attached a few other construction photos below.

Hope this helps,
Steve

Great pics!
Are those tank/pedal assemblies bolted to that 1x1 frame or firewall? I ask because my car is glass, so firewall mounting is out. I didnt even see room for under floor!

I have a 5 speed in my steel '33 coupe, but I keep it at my summer home. I'll see if I can round up a picture from home here of the pedals in the chassis. I have the clutch on the left side of the column, brake and gas on the right, but I did custom build it all here. I'm using a modified original chassis. It's a tight fit, but it does work. My pedals come through the floor.

Here's a few photos I had from the build. I used the original '33 pedals, rebushed them, bent the clutch pedal arm over under the floor, fabricated a custom mounting bracket and converted the clutch arm to use a GM hydraulic clutch set up. You can see some of the brackets in the frame shots if you look close. I also custom fabricated the trans tunnel, which may be somewhat narrower than yours. I've put over 100,000 kms on this car since then and the pedals have been flawless. Where the is a will.....there is a way. Good luck, Bill in Victoria, B.C.

I'm gonna have to check on what I'm smoking, I was expecting photos of 3 childrens pedal cars from the 1930's?

Imagine my surprise at the picture? A WTF moment if there ever was one, but after a day of harsh words from the old lady, it was fun to laugh at myself.

Thanks, Bogie

Looking back on my photos, it looks like I bent the brake pedal arm as well. It's been over 20 years since I finished this car. Just finished another one for my wife this fall..37 Slantback.

The pedal frame assembly is bolted top and bottom to the 1x1 frame. The frame in turn is bolted to the reinforced fiberglass body and firewall. I epoxied and fiberglassed plywood reinforcing onto both the body and firewall near the cowl area and incorporated threaded studs into the wood which the 1x1 frame bolts to. I also bonded the bottom horizontal bar of the frame directly to the fiberglass firewall to further stiffen everything up. A few earlier entries in my photo journal document that part of the installation.

I also reinforced the Kugel pedal frame itself by welding 3/4 inch angle around the bottom perimeter of the frame to stiffen it up. I've included a few more photos. Take a look at the bottom of the frame where it is clamped between the vise jaws. You'll see the other welded-in reinforcement. The other photo shows how the whole pedal assembly is bolted to the frame.
