They are swapable. A bit of a bear in the early cars but nothing that
can't be fixed with a zap screw.
I think from 68 on they are a direct bolt on replacment. But on the non
collapsable steering column cars the outboard mounting point is in a
different spot.
Like I said, a self drilling screw makes it work just fine.
I have a RB gas pedal on my Bugeye. No more dirt in the floor hinge, no
3 little pieces, and no more cheap replacement gas pedals that pop off
