The problem with the Practical classics 340 was that the guy who did the body restoration was reletively inexperienced in this type of involved structural repairs and the resulting problems with a distorted shell underlines this, You on the other hand have a wealth of experience and know your onions and your photo's show this. I think you are doing an epic job and saving yet another MK2 that would of been scrapped or banger raced and i look forward to more progress.

Just a tip when posting photos, insert a line space between each download, this will seperate the photos just as they are when you place text to describe the photo.
Great job BTW.

Hi, can anyone tell me the measurement from the inner sill to the accelerator pedal captive bolts? I need to replace these and the 1959 car doesn't have them to measure.

I assume you have the Organ type pedal with the four bolts on the floor pan ?

I can get the measurements either later or tomorrow if no one else can help sooner.

I have a 67 MK 2. The distance from the front of the inner sill to the bolts on the back side of the pedal mount is 25.25 inches. Insulation and soundproofing removed from the seat sill.

I haven't dug through all the rust and dirt yet to know exactly, but it looks like my floor mounted accelerator pedal is held on with two bolts on the back side. They both are the same distance.

Let me know if you need anything else.
Chuck

Thanks Chuck,

I put the throttle linkage back in in the end and used that to mark the pedal position and then welded the nuts in from below.
