1976 vette brakes
Just bought a 1976 vette, rear brakes are not releasing. Grinding noise after take off. Parking brake? Caliper? Brakes work great, just grinding noise for about 1 minute after use.

The parking brake could be hanging up but those Vettes are known for calipers rusting and locking up. If you do a search on the net you will find MANY sources for stainless lined calipers.

Pull the wheels off and see what you can find.
