  • Brakes: Swing pedals in GT Hawk

    Sometime in the future I would like to install a swing pedal assembly in my 63 GT Hawk. Has anyone got any experience or ideas what to use? I know I'll have to move the battery, and do other mods, but am looking for someone that has done this before.Thanks, Bill Van Alstyne.

    Hi Bill,
    Bob Johnstone's website has some articles pertaining to this. Scroll down about a third of the page to find it on the left-side of the page under the heading 'Suspended Brake Pedals'.

      I used an 89 Camaro IROC setup in my 54K including the proportioning valve and power booster. I had to reinforce the firewall. My brakes are also GM Monte Carlo front discs and Caprice rear drums. I also modified the fender well to fit the booster.

      The best shot I have on short notice.
