I saw this posted on the FB group by Andy, so I thought I'd share it here so everyone can see.  Apparently Modern Driveline is introducing a clutch pedal kit for the 1972-79 Torinos et al.  It's part number MD-402-7276T-C.
Here's an example of their work on the website:
 
It looks like Andy will be posting more info on this on the forum soon, but in the mean time this is what he posted on Facebook:

Well look at what I got today from our friends at MDL...Modern Driveline Inc. 1972+ clutch pedal.
Heavy stout piece.
Say goodby to overpriced factory pedal sets kids, and say hello to being able to adapt the 72-79 automatic pedal hangers to manual transmission goodness.
$195.00 from MDL.
If you mention you are from GranTorinoSport.org they will give an additional discount.

I’ll also say MDL also built my clutch package and helped me so let’s do what we can to support these guys!

Also as an FYI I am working with them and sending a firewall and 72-73 parts I had and ‘76 brake parts with the help of Justin Wicker.

Lastly John P. Steinberger was HUGE in this as he sent them a factory pedal set to get this ball rolling.

John’s car is set up with hydroboost but I’m working with MDL to get them to develop a hydraulic conversion kit similar to American Powertrain’s firewall kit they make.

I’ll be posting things to the forum but I wanted to share this good news.

This is the reason I’ve been asking members to post up on the forum on the thread to share details and pictures.

Does this run the Z-Bar or some kind of hydraulic setup?

It appears that it will work with a Z-Bar and it might be possible to adapt this to a cable style clutch, using parts that are already made for other Ford 4 and 5 speed conversions. The parts that Andy is sending to MDL will be for a hydraulic slave setup. Andy's goal is a kit that works with a standard power brake booster on the firewall and no need for Hydro boost. MDL said they need to work on the firewall mount.

What Dave posted above is what I believe is correct.  I am hoping Andy will come on here and explain the details.  I literally just copied his FB post to put it on here so that those not on FB could see this info.
