finally got some work done

Got this 67 in Feb., drove it 10 miles to get gas then started taking it apart. Slow progress since the weather here (Mo.) has not been that great but its coming along.

Really nice, I like the Vette master and booster.
I bet it doesnt' have 10 miles since the redo, there is way to much paint on the exhaust ports, and it's not discolored, that won't last..

Burning rubber since 1982!!
My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.

Thanks Jet, ur right, 0 miles, still working on front suspension. I converted from manual to disc brakes from Inline Tube, they promised it would work with 14 inch wheels, they said the kit was from a 68 GTO but you are probably right.

That is the correct master/booster for a '67. It's the same set-up I got from them for my '67 GTO. Curious if In-Line supplied original 4 piston calipers with that '68 kit, as that is what would be correct. SOME 14" wheels will work with the early disc brakes, but they need to have been built after August '66 for the introduction of the discs on the '67 models.

Too Many, it looks like a single piston about 2 to 2 1/2 in diam.

I kind of figured they were single piston. That is '69 up and will actually be better than the 4 piston calipers, which were somewhat troublesome. However, the 4 piston disc brakes were an actual option in '67 and are "correct" for your car, if you are concerned about that.

Most Drum/Disc combos have dif size front/rear master cylinder volume. Hmm, thought that was Vette only, guess I just don't know. Still looks really nice.
