As a life-long fan of gas pedal pumping women, I have always liked the floor-mounted gas pedal with the rod underneath that went under the floorboard. I was disappointed in 1955 when Chevrolet introduced what I think they referred to as a treadle with the linkage above the pedal.
During the 1960's, many other manufacturers followed suit. Despite this change, at least the gas pedals were predominantly floor-mounted.
My biggest disappointment, however, was when manufacturers came out with the suspended gas pedals which were often puny and hard to be seen when they were being pumped. This change was supposed to cater to the woman driver, but I don't think any good women pedal pumper has any issues with a floor-mounted gas pedal. Of all the things that have contributed to the demise of good pedal pumping, I think this is one of the worst. At least the German car manufacturers have been making cars with floor-mounted gas pedals, the early Toyotas had them, and many of the Korean cars are producing them. Kudos to the classic cars and the women who enjoy them because they soon will become a distant memory.

 I personally don’t like floor mounted gas pedals yes I know I’m from a younger generation but to me personally I like the new kind they go up and down easily I feel like we see more bouncing of a woman this that is just my personal opinion but for me the floor mounted pedals don’t do the trick they are hard and the woman can barely bounce in her seat at all

I was and still am a big fan of the floor-mounted gas pedal.  Actually I am pleased (and amused) to see them making a comeback.   My 2017 Mazda has one (and all current Mazdas).  I think Honda has been using them in some of their cars.   As was stated earlier, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and VW have been utilizing them for some time now.   Guessing it has something to do with the electronic (i.e. drive-by-wire) engine-control technology.

Big floor mounted gas pedals are the best.  I miss seeing women in the 70's and 80's with pantyhose, high heels and skirts holding the pedal to the floor and hearing the sound of a big V8 teasing and coming close to starting, but not turning over for long cranks.

 I like the 1960's gm cars when they used the ball studs to mount the gas pedal most women broke the gas pedal off by hard pumping and playing with the pedal. I seen this happen a lot back then.
When they broke the pedal off they freaked out and most of the time couldn't reach the pedal rod and one time in my cousin's 61 Chevy she used her purse as the gas pedal! Thoese were the days!

Oh yeah, back in the day, I saw a number of those Chevy gas pedals broken off; even missing.   I believe I wrote a quick story awhile back regarding a true incident which I came upon my first year of college in 1969.   A young (mid-20s) lady was stalled at a stop sign in her (actually her Mom's) 1961 Chevy Bel-Air.   I pulled up behind her and she told me the car had stalled but she couldn't get it started because the gas pedal was broken.   She then proceeded to show me with her right foot (brown oxford flats - Boooo!) moving the gas pedal along the floor.  She said she was afraid to "do anything with it", and would only turn the key to start which, of course, would not be enough to restart the car.   I told her it is okay to place the pedal back on top of the metal rod and gently press it with foot.  She did as I instructed but man oh man, did I ever f**k this one up!   What I should have said was "Here allow me to snap this pedal back onto the studs; better yet, I'll hold the bottom of the pedal while you maybe slip your shoe off and pump and hold the rest of the pedal using your stockinged foot".   Oh, well, chalk it up to being 18 years old and anxious to get to my 4pm class.

 I had a GF once who had a 74 or 75 Chevy Monte Carlo and her gas pedal after some years cracked and broke completely off from all the abuse and pumping that she did to it trying to get it started, it was a pain pumper for sure,and for the years of these Chevy GM Pedals you wouldn't think they would break or rot more durable than the 60's ones.

 The one I like is the floor-mounted one on the 2CV.  It appears to have a lot of travel and I would just explode watching a hot woman in sandals/flip flops gently working the pedal while cranking for extended periods.  That high-pitched starter is sexy.  There is a good one on “Cranking in Europe” titled, “Old Green” where a mom is taking her family somewhere and the car is being stubborn.  Realistic crankin and pedal action. She’s holding it halfway down while cranking.  She has cute boots on.

I have always been a fan of large floor-mounted gas pedals because, in my experience, they can pose a problem for women driving in shoes (and especially boots) with extremely high heels. The full pedal provides the best footing, but it forces a driver's foot and ankle to conform to the angle of the pedal which was usually set for flat shoes. With a higher heel set at the base of the pedal some women found it difficult to push the pedal to the floor. Also, elevating the heel on the pedal base made it more unsteady and often caused jerking and stalling. Even women who knew how to start a flooded car found it impossible to floor the accelerator without removing their right shoe, which was a common sight back in the day. Even though manufacturers provided a convenient depression at the base of the pedal, women often rested their heel beside the pedal for better leverage. The suspended pedals allowed every driver to choose a comfortable pivot point in anything from tennis shoes to stilettos while feeding gas with the ball of the foot.
