I'm not sure it never came up as a solution when people asked. I doubt anyone has ever tried.  From what I understand there are four different pedals used in the Pinto. One is early car (71-73) set. The other is 74 to ??? without a booster and 74 to ??? with a booster. I'm not sure what the fourth set is. So, it is just not Pinto pedals, but the right ones.

Here is my observation - so to speak. I have a lot of the T/C cruise control parts in the way so I had to feel, more than see. And BTW, this is on a '73 and as mentioned there are different pedals used over the years.

The clutch pedal seems to be welded to a shaft. This shaft runs though the steering column support which is where the brake pedal is positioned on that common shaft. A washer and clip then keep the shaft from sliding out.  So, yes, if you cut the clutch pedal above the shaft to remove the cable attachment point and below the shaft to remove the rest of the pedal then they can be removed.  It would however seem sad to cut what is likely a more difficult part to find (clutch pedal) as they seem to come as a set.  The actual Auto brake pedal is larger.  Lastly the gas pedal is a stand alone setup and is not attached to the clutch/brake pedal in any way.

If you would post the years of the Pinto's involved It would be helpful for those that have "been there" to help. As mentioned there are numerous pedal configuration used over the years.  It may be that you can just swap them out if they are the same year (booster might be an issue even in the same year). Thus, in addition to the year, please state if the brakes have a booster or not.  Be careful to keep all the nylon bushings, clips etc. in the changeover.

Manual - you can barely see the red clip on the left side of the clutch rod. You can see how it comes apart. Best to take your seat out so you can see what you are doing.
My yellow car had an auto. No pictures & I cannot remember what rod it had ?
