I am in need of a driver side strut rod bracket for a 66-69 American but, for the 4 speed. This is the only thing I should need to finish making my car move under it's own power. Thank you!

I have two full strut rod sets off a 69 Rambler but did not know there was a difference for a four speed car.

The ball stud mounts in the D shaped hole. Then the Z bar mounts on that.

we make the other v8 rambler clutch linkage parts also, some are not the same as factory as we have made them to use spherical rod ends instead of just the rod thru the hole friction fit. i have had our first set in our rambler wagon for 5 years now, working great.
i would need customer parts to modify for the strut rod bracket and the  6 cyl clutch pedal.
i will post some prices after i double check with my fab guy and on parts cost, we haven't made any for a while.
thanx

Interesting.
My 67 6 cyl mounts in the hole the plastic plug sits in about the strut bracket.
You pop the plug out and an aluminum cup sits in the hole.

I've been using it for 15+ years now. with the 4.0L bellhousing I had to make a bracket for that side.
