Was there a better time for lovers of American cars than the late 1960s? Historically, it was a perfect storm for the Detroit automakers. The kids born to WWII vets had grown up and were ready for their first cars, and they didn't want what their parents were driving. Imports hadn't glutted the market. Governmental regulations hadn't yet begun to enforce safety standards. Gas was cheap. Driving was fun. And pony cars were just right for this moment in time.
If you are at all like our tech guys, high quality fabrication is like a well done painting hanging in an art gallery…..it is something you simply can’t turn away from. Due to the nature of our business, one area that impresses us the most is when brake lines are run in that just right manner. A local area shop is building a ’68 Mustang with a 5.0 Coyote powertrain and they just finished up the brake lines on the car. While they maybe went about it the wrong way by running the lines after the engine compartment was completed and all of the accessories were installed, we think it turned out pretty good. Take a look at a couple of pictures.
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.
