    I believe you are talking about '47 - '52 F-1 truck drums, right? If so, check with your local Checker/Kragen/Schucks parts house. A client of mine just picked up a pair from them for something like 65.00 each. They had to order them for him and it took a day but I couldn't beat the price.

    I'm looking for a pair of '46 drums for the rear of my coupe, and the local NAPA didn't have them listed on the 'puter, counter guy said this meant no NAPA wouldl have them.
