I suppose, if you look at everything upside down.

And/or have no clue as to what you have.

Actually, it doesn't look bad as a gas pedal.

Cool idea.

If you sell antiques you need a certain amount of imagination and confidence. I bought a clothes hanger (3 never-out tail lamp brackets hooked together) and a friend bought a candle mold (Aeromore exhaust whistle). At least these folks knew it was for a Ford.

They're a couple of young guys selling junk they find at yard sales and estate sales. Furniture seems to be their strong suit...and the only reason they knew this belonged to a Ford was the script on the inside of the brake pedal. They're on FB also, I sent them a message informing them of their error, maybe they'll change it next time they put it up because nobody is bidding on it, Im sure the Model A guys know better. :-)

Actually, I was just looking at a pedal in my parts box today thinking that it might make a pretty good gas pedal.

Too bad it didn't have a fancy pyramid pattern with a "B" in the middle of it. Would have been well worth the price!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Remembering the gas pedal on my White it's not a bad guess. Almost the same size too.

Yes, but the foot throttle on and A Model isn't really a pedal at all, it's a button. There's a foot prop right next to it and you rest your foot on the prop and use it as leverage to depress the button. Of course they also had the same throttle and spark advance set up as used on the T Model, but they don't have a pedal like this one at all...unless you bought some after market contraption.

All I see here is some good, clean humor. They didn't know any better. Pretty funny.

Have a laugh ! :-)

Rich,

I packed around a White steering unit to swap meets for far 2 many years.

I took a Saw-zall and cut the bracket and throttle pedal off and saved it for a future project. I also Saw-zalled the quadrant off with what was left of the steering wheel and spark and throttle levers. I still have them.

Ouch! I guess it's hard to sell if you don't find the right guy. I'm glad I found mine.
"just sayin'"
Rich
