I hope that you didn't go to the cost and work to put '53 brakes on your car. 1954-1966 brakes are much better. Most people with '53s change at least the front brakes over to later ones.

Gary's right! '54 and up brakes were a vast improvement over earlier Stude brakes. And while the 54-up brakes from a 6 cylinder car are an improvement, the really trick setup is the 54-up V8 brakes. Stude used bigger brakes on V8s than 6s.[:0]
If you've mounted '53 brakes on your Champion, then 54 and later brakes would bolt right up in their place. Of course, you've got to have everything from the backing plate - out to accomplish the swap.;)

Miscreant at large.
