Seeing if anyone on input on Wilwood brakes?
Have a 70 Mach 1. 351C 4V (C6 Auto tranny for now)
Currently has front disk and rear drum.
Want to switch everything out to Wilwood front and rear.
Currently have 15" Magnum 500 Wheels
Wilwood has so many options.
What size disc for front will fit?
What size disc for rear will fit?
Calipers front 4 piston or 6 piston? Same at rear?
Do you use a Wilwood Master Cylinder?
Drilled and Slotted rotors?
Any input would be helpful...
Thanks

Why are you changing the brakes out. Do you have a requirement for more powerful brakes. I to have a 70 mach and I rebuilt my entire brake system and it performs very well. A stock rebuild is very inexpensive and keeps things stock.
looking at your signature pic looks familiar, nice mach.

You should check and see what kind of spindles Wilwood caliper brackets bolt to. Many aftermarket brake kits bolt to the drum brake spindle backing plate holes. Pretty sure you will need bigger wheels for any significant brake upgrade.
