Hey Guys , will try to be short and to point ! My lifelong buddy ,is and avid classic car guy , not Mopar ,but agent orange is doing a real number on him ! He’s no longer able to clutch his car and has anyone heard or know of a drive by wire system to operate his clutch , so he can still , feel his big stroker and pull his stick trans ! Mostly car shows and a little strong red light fun for him ! Be kind ! He was in the worst of the worst in Southeast Asia in 67-68 Thanks

Depends what he’s using now but hydraulic setups can be a lot easier to push. I assume he can use his leg but just not as much strength?

No left leg isn’t strong enough to push pedal anymore, once he was a bull but health has really declined in his lower section! Been looking into handicap units! But so many of us in this site , that have amazing info , thought I would see what was available!

I second doing an automatic. It will be easier to do and I think safer to drive.

He's an American hero and deserves to enjoy his car. If he can't afford the automatic swap, I, for one, would be willing to help.
