    Has anyone installed a clutch safety switch to their pre-70 cars? I'm wondering if there is a factory bracket/switch from a later car that can be added with minimal modification.

    Seems I need one iffin I want to run my 67 down the track at the local test n tune night.

    I just installed one in my 69 Dart for a 3 step rev limiter.
    I fabricated a bracket and used a brakelight switch. Wasnt too hard.

      So a person can't lean in thru the window to start the car, and have it drive away by itself.
