Found this in a box of parts, don't need it anymore. This is a gas pedal and hand throttle combo from a RHD mini-truck, and a spare gas pedal from a domestic LHD mini, both in the '84-88 era. A friend living in AUS sent me the RHD one many years ago, I guess many trucks down there have it standard. Turns out if you look on the lower dash section of our trucks, down by the hand brake, the D-shaped hole is there for it, but usually there's a plug in the hole. My plan was to cut the hand throttle part off the RHD one and weld it to the spare LHD one, to make the swap easy. Never got around to the project.

Asking $75 shipped in CONUS.

It would be handy for quicker warm-ups in the winter, or if you are winching and want to boost the RPMs so that alternator can keep up. At normal idle speed, the alternator is barely putting out enough amps to keep the engine running, so if you have a big drain, you can actually kill the battery even with the engine running.
