    hi, welcome

    Might depend if it's a Master Deluxe, or a Master 85...they use different front suspension, etc.

    The original Huck brakes are not that good, but the later Bendix type brakes used starting in 1951 on Chevy cars and trucks are pretty good.

    We need pictures of the car, of course...

    Yes pictures please, I like 39 Chevs. Can't help you with the brakes, mine has had a later disc braked front end fitted into it. One thing to look at when you mount your diff is getting the wheel centred in the guard, you need to offset the locator hole on the spring pad.
