Find a granada. Some had 351w's in them. Those are the best. You can get disc brakes, a 9" rear end and a 351 motor all at one place. One I found once even had the rear disc brakes on it.
Get the proportioning valve from the Granada and upgrade the master cylinder to a 2 resivore type. I used Mustang II brake lines to keep from re doing the hard lines up front.
Mercury Cougars are a great place to look. They are often overlooked and used the same exact parts as the mustangs; rear ends included. Cougars were more of a "luxury car" compared to the mustang back in the day, so you will find discs on these cars more often than mustangs (at least in my experience). I'm adapting '68 cougar discs to my '65 right now using a '74 maverick m.c. You can actually get new calipers for the '68 cougar/mustang very cheap from your local parts place which is a huge plus, but it is nice to get the rotors & spindles from the yard.
Granadas are a sure bet to find with the discs, but I have heard of wheel fitment problems with those spindles. Whatever you decide to do, good luck!
Thanks a lot for the help... I guess I'll take the boy to the junk yard and see what we can turn up. I am not really familiar with Granadas. Is there a certain year that we need to look out for? Thanks Again
I found this battery in a '60s vintage Mercury station wagon in a junkyard a few years ago. The hood was stuck down due to collision damage so the battery was never removed. I was able to open the hood and extract the battery. Anyone know how to interpret the dates and other markings?
New to the forum and the classic car scene. I recently purchased a 1968 Mustang convertible. I love the car but have had issues with the Horn button falling off. It doesn't seem to secure to the housing. I have searched cjponyparts trying to find a piece that would keep it in place...
So, there's this thing called an Edelbrock Divided Heat Insulator Carburetor Gasket. Edelbrock offers these things to address problem restart issues in the event you ever attend a Cars & Coffee morning "soiree" and discover something else is percolating besides the coffee. (It doesn't seem to...
When I bought my 65 it came with what I believe is the original console, but it wasn't secured with screws. I'm finally getting around to securing it and I'm having issues getting it far enough under the A/C unit. I've attached a picture and the black bracket circled in Red seems to be the...
