Hello to everyone......

Yesterday I did went to local dealership and did saw 1979 Mustang in person. I noticed this car have foot pedel E-brake! I never seen this before, but I know most of Mustang have console E-brake, is that correct?

Anyone of you ever seen foot pedel E-brake on Mustangs before?

i dont have a clue on those old stangs -
back in the day, foot ebrakes (and the foot controlled high beam switch - remember those) were common.

possibly a converted car (aod to stick)?

A 79 mustang should have the consol one. No matter if it was a stick or an auto.

I never knew that had foot pedal e-brakes on them. I guess maybe the auto's were different then the manuals. I have a manual '82 5.0 and which has the console e-brake of course.

you would not think they would move it - either it comes only on the console or on the floor. think of the extra cost and planning to have e-brakes in two different locations - the factory likes cookie cutter stuff, as much as possible.

either we arent familiar with it, or someone did a hack job, perhaps.
