  • Brakes: 1933 ad in May TW

    Page 10 in May TW has an ad for 1933 Studes. All the models mention "power brakes". Are these the modern vacuum type or something else?

        I may be missing something in the articles, but I didn't see anything mentioning that in 1933 these were vacuum assisted, cable operated, mechanical brakes, not hydrophilic.

          While in 1933, the Rockne 10 was still mechanical cables.
