    It can use the same unit as the conversion kits sold for the Avanti. The disc brake system is the same for Larks.

        From my thread on Racing Studebakers forum :

        "I found this today ... I think that this is the master I used, I was looking at it
        now that I have the 4 wheel discs on, and its looking kinda "icky" after being
        on there for over 10 years. I think I will stop by Autozone and buy a new
        master cylinder to be ready for my Cobra brakes which I will order soon.

        "Here is what you will need. 1 ea. NAPA/United master cylinder 36307 (or Bendix 11515; this unit fits a
        variety of '71-'75 Mopars, but a specific model to nail it to is a '71 Dodge Polara, 360 ci V-"
        "
