That idea looks good but no price yet. Those brakes could give a person nose bleed. With the front and rear brakes and a set of tires to match, 60 - 0 times would be scary. It will be high on my wish list for my next project for sure.

Wow, those things would really make your pony go Whooooooo.
I'm curious what the package would sell for, and what a set of calipers cost.
Sure would look nice on the front though!

Good find Bill. This is kinda were I was going a week or so back when I asked if aftermarket calipers would fit stock rotors. Unfortunately I have 72 Mustang disc brakes.

I wonder how close Granada and 72 Mustang brakes are????

The PBR calipers are used on the baer track kit, probably would stop very well. Not sure if the Granada
spindles are similar to the Mustang or not. I have PBR calipers on 70 Mustang spindles (useing SSBC brackets) The brackets are alot different then the ones on that link..

That's what's going on my 67. Basically because I had these Granada spindles, and there were these '00 Mustang calipers I get get dirt cheap (with 942 actual miles).Soo... My father in law is a machinist and whipped up the brackets for me. He said that the supplied plans from the website weren't particulary accurate. He used them as a general guide and just built the brackets to fit. The spindles are completely assembled but it will be quite a while before I get to install and test them. I'm holding off until I collect all the new suspension parts so I can do all the front end at once.
I'm still not completely convinced about the sufficiency of this setup and will treat the hybrid brakes as experimental.

I have the subject brakes on my '65. I have the '74 Maverick master cylinder on the car. I don't think it's enough. I can lock up the rears and fronts don't feel like they're doing much.

They look cool though behind my Torque Thrusts.
