Parking brake warning light for a 71?

 Yes, another good thought. Could likely hook it up to the door buzzer I don't use, the wires are right there.
Food for thought indeed.
Also, IF these cars were built so a person could "Toe & Heel" the gas and brake pedals, the hill start thing would be eased.

I believe the relationship of the clutch, brake gas pedal was a government spec. My feet are too big to toe heel. I would never make it on road coarse.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

My no option car doesn't have them either. The dual brake warning light works by applying a ground to the negative side of the bulb. So, I'm going to add a switch to my parking brake pedal that will be connected to ground on one side and to the dual brake warning light circuit on the other, by tapping into the purple/white stripe wire that runs from the combination valve to the dash. This will apply the ground to the brake warning light in the dash cluster when the parking brake is on, turning it on.  It won't identify whether it's a hydraulic problem or parking brake on, but if the parking brake is fully released it will be obviously a hydraulic problem.
Great idea. One more mod for the long list...

 Hmm, got the opposite problem, feet too small to reach both pedals easily!! 
But then all my cars in the UK had hand brakes, hill starts no problem. 
Still, the focus here is to find a reminder for when I (and apparently others) leave the stupid parking brake on.  I'm liking the buzzer idea the more I think about and from other comments about not noticing the light.

This should work, flashing red and buzzing

 Ideas abound! Thanks. Now, just need to find a suitable switch that can be mounted on the brake mechanism, or is there a repop for that?

Or, the next time you go to Pic-n-Pull get one from a '79 to '92 Mustang.

Ah! took me a minute to figure out what you meant, still half asleep this morning. I already have one, yaps at me every time I step on it...… amongst other things!!
I'll settle for a buzzer.
