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.
