THIS THREAD IS VERY OLD. THE FUNDING DRIVE IS OVER. IT FAILED. DO NOT POST HERE SAYING IT WON'T WORK, I ALREADY KNOW. We're kicking off our funding drive to start production on new 45 fin Buick Style Aluminum Brake Drums. I'm not asking for charity here, just looking for forty (40) people to pledge to buy a pair out of the first batch. Retail price is set at $500 per pair. They will work with 37-48 Bendix style backing plates, mounted on 37-48 Ford car spindles, using 37-48 Ford car hubs, without any machine work or modifications to the drums. Open the box, install the drum over the hub, done. No spacers, no shims, no machine work. Standard bolt circle will be 5 on 5 1/2" to match the 37-48 hubs, but any bolt circle can be custom drilled during mfg at no extra charge. Here's a screen cap of the new design: They are essentially identical in exterior appearance to the stock 45 fin Buick drums. To become one of the forty that help us bring these drums back, Click Here to fund the project via RocketHub. They will handle the logistics of the money collection and hold it in escrow until the goal is met. Once the goal has been met, the foundry will pour the castings, and we'll be off and rolling. Thanks for taking the time to read this post. And remember, even if you yourself don't have any need for these drums, you can help us immensely by spreading the word to people you know that DO need them. Spreading the word is very nearly as good as buying a pair of drums (not quite, but almost ). Thanks again.
