    this is a project I'm working on for free. My buddy Steve Devinport died unexpectedly on Thanksgiving. left his widow with this house not complete. He was a cuda owner and a great friend to me. So I'm donating my general contractor time to her to try to get the home finished this year so she can live in it and get out of the air stream trailer they have been living in for quite some time.

    LOL I’ve got to bring in quite a bit more fill. The grade was off a few inches here and there. The guy that did the site work was in a hurry.That was over 50 yards of gravel already. Can you say over budget!!!

    New seals, bearings, races, rotors, calipers, pads, hoses and sway bar end links on my latest ‘67 Imperial. Finished that today instead of client work...:rolleyes:

    It should. Budd are the stock brakes on mid to late ‘60s Imperials and the optional brakes on at least the Chrysler C-bodies. I’d try to slip a 15” x 6.5” on it for you but the Imps have a 5” bolt circle. I will say that not everything is readily available for them so rebuilding them isn’t cheap and guys are even choosing to replace them with the later single piston setups but I personally think that’s ridiculous.

    Shame looks like they would have good stopping power.
    Will have to get my CNC guy to make some adaptor plates for some Brembos you can pick them up used here at a reasonable price.
