    Needed 54-66 front brakes

    With all the advice I have received it looks like I need to find a set of 54-66 front brake setups for a Commander, V8 car. Need backing plates, guts and drums. Anyone have this set up? I have the rear.

    I expect John Kroulik could fix you up. And Chuck Collins has relined shoes and new wheel cylinders and springs.

    Jim, I have a complete set for the front as I changed over to disc brakes for my '62 Hawk. Cost is REAL reasonable. 918-647- 9988 and leave message. Chet

    If you'll drive the Volvo out to the house I'll give you the backing plates. I'm in south gilbert.

    Don't know what your time frame is, but I'm going to install a disc brake conversion onto a 64 Daytona, V8 car that has 11" front drums. Not sure of the condition of anything, as I bought it as a parts car for another I'm building.
    Located in North Phoenix, near Cave Creek. Pretty sure we can work something out.

    I have a complete set in near new condition from the bearings out off a 1963 V8 Lark. Unfortunately the shipping would be a killer from my place in Alberta to Arizona. I am sure you will find something closer.
