    tired of ya? not a chance. The booster assembly I got was from a company called waterloo tire company out of iowa. Kind of a mail order outfit. Any way the unit I bought stated it was for a 32 ford. But it was a universal style kit. Also make sure you get the dual booster and not the single unit. It will work better with the weight of your car. I found them looking through ebay for 32 ford. And there they were. Oh and also if you go the ebay route, scroll quite a ways through cause there pricing is all over the board. good luck...ghost

    personal opinion, you really don't need power brakes on that car.

    I have a 54 with a manual 78 corvette m/c underthe floor and it works great.
    (disc brakes in the front too) mount your m/c behind your stock one- hollow out your stock one- and run your push rod right thru your stock m/c to your new one behind it. pretty easy to do and it allows you to keep your stock pedals with out having to mess with them too much:)

    you could probably do the same with a small booster too.
    I personally feel that my car brakes just fine with out it though.

    I got a manual underfloor setup with a dual master that uses the stock pedal from ECI for my '53. It uses a mustang master cylinder for disc front drum rear. Works good and easy to install.

    If you're going to run the car LOW, don't use a booster. they usually hang below the frame rails. As the others have said, you really don't need one.

    Thank you all so much. You have no idea how much you guys have helped me. This is my first attempt at a custom and I just want it to turn out right ya know?
  10. I'm running a Vette M/C also. Made my own bracket lengthened the original brake rod. Not that hard to do. Todd
