Why not the Clarks Repros? They look pretty darn good, and nearly exact repro.

Tom,

I looked in the OPGI Chevelle catalog for 1966 pads and came up with this.

RESTOPARTS
1964-77 Chevelle Brake & Clutch Pedal Pad (4-Speed) Drum Brake/Clutch

Part Number PZ00013 $7.99 each. (1st photo)

Completely authentic in every detail
Identical to the originals
This correctly reproduced functional pad is identical to the original with the correct rubber lines. Your satisfaction guaranteed.

As mentioned, Clarks also offers reproduction pads but they look a little different than the OPGI version.
For what it is worth, the Clarks item is less expensive too.

Part number C94X: 60-69 CAR STANDARD PEDAL PAD-EXACT ORIG ALSO 60-61 PG

1 - 2 $ 5.25
3+ $ 4.90

(2nd photo) Clarks has what looks like a "Smile" at the bottom.

More information.

I looked on the Year One website for a 1962 - 1967 Nova Clutch and Brake Pedal Pad and they offer the one like Clark's for $9.99 each.

They also offer one for a 1968 - 1974 Nova that looks like the OPGI Version for $5.00 each.

I purchased a reproduction set from Soft Seal. Unfortunately they did not fit right. Appears the grooves on the back of the pad may not be deep enough. When installed, the sides appear to be rippled outward. I did not want to use another reproduction with possibly the same results, hence, looking for NOS or slightly used original.......

The Clarks match the style I have seen in Corvairs since the 1960's. The other looks like the common replacement I got from JC Whitney. Was there a change in the Late - Late production?

I have a pair of new aftermarket ones for sale. They are the small ones for brake and clutch pedals. You can find it in a post on miscellaneous EM and FC items for sale.

My '66 has this style. Is this original or something else? It is obviously different from Clark's or OPGI.

That looks like an OE pad that was on GM vehicles in the 1980's if my memory serves me correctly.

Looks like a replacement pad that you could buy from GM in the 70’s maybe 80’s.

My feeble memory.

Pic of original is on page 147 of Clark’s online catalog.

Tom,

For that item I'd want to stay away from NOS. Rubber changes chemically over time and by now any NOS from the 60s would probably be pretty hard / stiff, likely to split when you stretch it over the pedal.

Hopefully you find a repro that you like.

Think he must have figured it out by now.

OP was in 2017

I jumped on this one because several pads were discussed. I've had good luck with the Clark's pads.

The pad that Joel shows a picture of I think started in the early '70's and went in to the '90's on the pick ups. Some of the ones from the early '70's had molded into them the words "Disc Brakes" for the cars that had the optional disc brakes.
