HELP disk brakes old Plymouth
« on: June 09, 2010, 02:21:08 PM »

I know most of you guys are into the newer bigger cars but, i thought i would give it a try. A couple of years ago i found Plydo for older restoration and rod parts for Plymouths and Dodges (mainly 30's and 40's) and they had an almost bolt on conversion kit to put disk brakes on my 41 plymouth. I thought i would wait until i was ready for them to buy it, and that wasnt  a good idea. The original owner died a while back (heart attack at a car show) and the son was going to take over, but no one can get a hold of him. Now for the question both me and my Dad (his is a 40 dodge) are getting ready to really get these cars done enough waiting but we both wanted to get these kits and were wondering if any one knew of another source for them?

I know there's another outfit that Steve, our Grand Poobah, has dealt with, but I can't remember their name at the moment...something like AAA or some such.

Write to Roger at AAJ Brakes up in Oregon too.  He makes all sorts of kits like that.  H emakes a kit you can put discs on a 60's car with the 14" wheels too.  I'm thinking of getting one.  I just talked to him 2 days ago too.
 
Tell him I sent you.

You can also check in Street Rod magazines.  There's lots of stuff out there for customs that standard car magazines will not offer.
