Over the course of many years our customers have used our Legend Series brake system which has proven to be a very strong and reliable. The Legend Series has been the staple of Master Power Brakes since our inception in the 80's. It continues to be our top seller and most commonly used kit. However at Master Power Brakes we are always looking for new ways to improve upon things. This led us to take another look at our Legend Series kits and what we could do to improve them. The result of that hard work is our Rallye Series disc brake conversion kits.
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.
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.
