In 1964, the Ford Motor Company introduced arguably one of the most popular cars ever in the Ford Mustang. Over the years, these cars have been everything from a simple cruiser to a full-on race car. They are timeless and seem to fit everyone’s requirements for what a cool car should be. While they may look good and are loved because of that, they suffer from the same thing that many cars suffered from back then and that was what we know of today as quality disc brakes. There were some exceptions to the rule during this time but for the most part, the vast majority of the Mustangs produced up through 1973 came as a drum brake equipped vehicle.
Most of our customers own cars that came with drum brakes as original equipment, and sooner or later, they need to make a decision about upgrading to disc brake technology. If you own a very rare, museum quality classic car that is 100% original, you can make a reasonable case for leaving things alone.

Converting your 1965 Mustang from drum to front disc brakes is a weekend upgrade project that will improve braking reliability and performance for years. Like most muscle cars from this era, the 1965 Ford Mustang came equipped with drum brakes off the assembly line. There are some enthusiasts who insist on keeping their cars as close to the original look and feel as possible – and we get that.
At the same time, there are a number of reasons why folks convert from drum to front disc brakes.

The conversion is designed much like the original Mustang disc brake option using low profile 4-piston calipers that bolt to an original V-8 spindle. Our approach provides for an installation that is among the simplest in the industry and also allows all 15” wheels to clear and the majority of 14” wheels.
