    That looks like the bracket that Avanti motors made back when I first made my kit. I had talked to Mike Kelly just about that time. The comments that I got from Mike and 2 of his employees were "wow, that's what our brackets should look like"
    I believe that Nostolgic Motors still sells these.

      My fiat spyder has disc brakes all around with 13" wheels. I think it all has to do with the distance from the top of the rotor to the top of the caliper. You won't necessarily have to use small rotors to keep 14" wheels.

        Those old Fiats did not need brakes unless they broke down on a hill . My sister still has the 78' Spyder I helped her fix up in high school. Learned a LOT about dual-point ignition and head gaskets on that car.

          By relocating the caliper mounting holes on my Hawk, I got Studebaker
          disc brakes to fit inside a 14" wheel. Anything is "possible".

          '63 Avanti R1, '03 Mustang Cobra 13" front disc/98 GT rear brakes, 03 Cobra 17" wheels, GM alt, 97 Z28 leather seats, TKO 5-spd, Ported heads w/SST full flow valves.
