I'm currently looking for a Touring to keep my Roadster company, and came across this rare (Barn Find) :-) One thing i found interesting was the accessory pedals clearly bolted on. Has anyone ever seen these before? Looks like something us big footers would appreciate.

Its pic 9 in the series .

I haven't seen the brass ones for a while, Langs and Snyders used to carry them, I don't se them listed online.

I just checked Langs on line and could not find them. I guess Tbay is the answer.

Depending on your shoe size and which variant of the Model T Ford you drive, there will either be just barely enough room on the floor for your feet and the pedals, not quite enough room for your feet and the pedals, or nowhere near enough room for your feet and the pedals.

Whenever I hear someone recite the oft-quoted bromide, "Ford knew what he was doing," I recall the ergonomic abomination at my very feet. _Henry may have known a lot about things like rear-end gear ratios and removable heads, but his mistaken belief that all his customers had feet like a Barbie doll is a curse passed down from generation to generation, and here I am, tucking my shoelaces into my sneakers so as not to get all tangled up in the dad-blamed pedals!—And yes, I wear sneakers because my very average, size-11 shoes would make the situation awkward to the point of hazard.

The one good thing Mr. Ford did in the realm of tootsie ergonomics was to give the too-close-together pedal pads a slim, 4-sided diamond shape with rounded off corners. _It is the smallness and shape of these pedals that give me the hope that on days when my feet aren't swollen, I can get my left foot out of the trap formed by the emergency brake lever and the clutch, around, over and upon the stupid pedal.

With the above in mind, I cannot imagine why anyone would want to purchase an accessory that would make the tops of the pedals any wider.

I will try anything to make it easier to drive with my "16-EEE" feet.

I have a couple of the ones Tom shows above. Work quite well. A little too grippy when new. But keeps your foot from coming off the pedal.
