Which accelerator cable  do I need for my '67 Mustang Restomod ?


Currently I am using a 1970 Gas Pedal with a 1987 5.0 EFI with Auto under the hood.

Which cable would fit correctly ? Should I use the cable from the 1987 ?


Thanks for your help

the 87 cable is easily available in many parts stores...

the cable mounting distance is 21 inches which is the length from the firewall to the bracket where the cable casing mounts on the bracket next to the throttle body..


the End to End length of the entire cable is 31.5 inches.

if that helps..  cut a length of hose 21 inches and see if it will work for the length..

Thanks so much for responding and helping me out. I really appreciate it

I found out that the best solution will be to use the '87 cable with the '70 mustang pedal.

and why did i bother to post all these numbers..

because i helped a friend a long time ago.. install a 4 barrel intake on his 67 F150 straight six 300 motor..  i found that it would be far simpler to search out the junk yards for a 74 thru around 78 F series pickup. as they used an external bracket for the accelerator pedal assembly..  i swapped the entire pedal assembly onto his 67F150.. i used a fuel injected V8 econoline accelerator cable. as it was way long..  i also grabbed the very annoying fairmont/mustang mid to early 80s 200 Six throttle cable bracket .. the one that goes under a carb mounting bolt and over the valve cover to mount under coil mounting bolt.  this worked out perfectly as i was able to bend it in half.. and get it on 2 of the intake/exhaust flange studs .. allowed me to use the cable without fabbing anything.. looked funny.. worked perfectly..
