For many years, Master Power Brakes (and every other company offering disc brake conversions) has simply used the General Motors thought process for converting drum brakes to disc brakes on the 64-72 GM A-body, 67-69 GM F-body and the 64-74 GM X-body vehicles. We aren’t saying what General Motors did was wrong, but we felt it was time to re-visit this system and approach it with a new line of thinking for our Legend Series.
For many years, folks associated restoring a 60’s to 70’s era truck with the Chevrolet C-10 option. Ford’s have always had a loyal following, but for a variety of reasons, we see increased interest in older F100’s. There is an abundant supply of spare parts for these vehicles and the selling prices at auctions, and the car corrals are reasonable.
If you are lucky enough to own one of these workhorse classics, you may be tempted to buy used brake parts during restoration, but let’s be honest—trucks are heavier than their sedan counterparts, and the original drum brakes found on older F100’s aren’t well-suited for today’s driving conditions. Instead of going the salvage route, consider a disc brake conversion kit from Master Power Brakes.
The E-Body Dodge Challenger was a late but popular pony car response to the Ford Mustang and the Chevy Camaro that came with a wide variety of trim and option packages, including virtually every engine in the Mopar lineup. Challengers built between 1970 and 1974 represent an important slice of American automotive history, so for our Mopar faithful, we manufacture front disc brake conversion kits and rear disc brake conversion kits for vehicles manufactured from 1970-1974.
We recently received a customer note asking about options for a 1970 Challenger, so we figured we should share our response with all of you Mopar fans out there. We manufacture three different disc brake conversion kits designed specifically a 1970 Dodge Challenger. Each kit comes as a bolt-on solution, so you won’t need to make modifications during installation, and we have options for every budget and driving style.
