Just the Details...1966 Shelby Mustang GT350

Original Front Disc Brake Caliper for 1966 GT350  Mustang.
 If you have been following our Blog posts about the "freshening up" of our 1966 Shelby, you are familiar with this car.  We are trying to clean it up and preserve many of the original areas of the car.  This is being accomplished successfully by Jeremy Turner at Maple Hill Restoration. 

In the concern of safety, some parts are being restored.  The brake system is one of these parts.  We are completely restoring the brake system on the Shelby.  This will include new metal brake lines and hoses along with rebuilds of the brake calipers, master cylinder and wheel cylinders.

The original disc brake calipers were still with the Shelby and are even date coded.  Below is a picture of the date stamping on one of the calipers showing "46 -6".  This is the 46th day of 1966 which was February 15, 1966.

The calipers will receive our BK-1501 Complete 65-66 Mustang Caliper Rebuild Kit, which includes new pistons, o-rings, dust boots, retainers, bolts and washers.
