I JUST BOUGHT A 65 6 CLYINDER - AUTOMATIC WITH NON POWER BRAKES. IS IT POSSIBLE TO CONVERT MY PONY TO POWER BRAKES BY JUST ADDING THE POWER BOOSTER AT THE MASTER CYLINDER WITH THE VACUUM LINE TO THE CARB? OR IS IT MORE INVOLVED THAN THAT? THANKS CRAIG

I know that you can convert to a boosted system. Our car is a 65 with standard trans, which makes a booster fit very expensive to do. You have to remove the clutch rod assembly and go to a hydraulic clutch. The automatic is easier. Check Trans Am racing. They have a bolt on conversion. Also check Classic Tube, they might have one. For safety considerations consider converting to a dual master cylinder. With a single master cylinder if a line or hose leaks you've lost all your brakes. With the dual system you have something. Trans Am has a dual master cylinder conversion kit.
Also go to Stainless Steel brakes they now have a conversion kit for six cylinder mustangs to a power, dual master cylinder, with disk brakes. I'm sure they would sell just the booster and master cylinder system.
Also you have to buy or make new brake lines since the position of the master cylinder has changes.

My son got me into this and I'm having a ball
