    Is there any brake options for these cars and is there anywhere that sells slant six performance parts? Thanks
  2. Clifford still sells speed parts for slant sixes, if memory serves.

    Several outfits have performance parts and they can be made to run pretty strong.
    I think that you can use a number of later model brake pieces from the Duster, Demon and others in that size of car.

    If you have 10" drums rather than 9" drums SSBC makes a bolt on disk brake kit for the 10" spindle. 10" drum spindles differ from 9" drum spindles. Nice thing about SSBC disk brakes they come drilled with both the 5 on 4" lug pattern and the 5 on 4.5 pattern. Clifford make performance stuff for the slant 6.
    In my opinion the 66 Valiant front end is the ugliest front end they made for that body style except maybe for the 63, but then we all know what opinions are like. Any front sheetmetal, fenders, hood, grill, bumpers, etc as a set from 63 to 66 Valiant Dart or Barracuda will bolt on that body. I use to have a 66 Valiant wagon and I had 65 Barracuda front sheetmetal on it. Made a good looking wagon. Nice thing about 66s also is that they have column shifts rather than pushbuttons for the automatics.

  5. Early 70's A bodies. Take the upper a-arms off with the spindles.If the rotor are in good shape take them also.If not you can still get them at your local auto partsThe one suggestion would be,get new calipers and brake hoses.

  9. LOL! :eek: No way, li'l buddy! Pushbuttons are a TON COOLER than a column shift. :cool: Otherwise you can't tell people that you're drivin' a "Chinese Six With A Typewriter"! :D ;)

    They may be cool but to use pushbutton shift your stuck with the cable shift transmission which also had the ball trunion bolt on front joint on the drive shaft....pain in the ass!
