You might try these folks:

I engineered my own using their basic design on a fabricated FAB-9 housing with big Torino ends, they work great, using Eldo calipers and their rotors. the rotors require a 5.710 hub flange and needs a 2.810 register, worked for me with Mark Williams Masterline axles.

The Granada/Versailles 9" sounds like a good idea - but parts for them have become almost impossible to find, new or used, OEM or aftermarket.

The piston size in a versaille caliper is somewhat large,(2.125"),and needs a large bore master cylinder and large brakes in the front to keep the system balanced.

I am in the process of sorting out a 65 mustang with versaille brakes in the back, and Baer dual piston 1.625 calipers in the front. It was impossible to get any presure built up with manual brakes and a 1" bore master, so we installed a hybroboost and and larger bore master.
We have yet to start the car, so I don't know for sure that things will work out.

Building a system around a brake set that is heavy, oversized, and somewhat obsolete is not a good way to start. The Mustang track racer guys used the versaille setups for many years, but it has fallen out of favor with them for the reasons stated above.


I'd suggest that you pick up a brake kit from ECI or speedway or adapt a explorer rear brake setup...it'll be much less headache in the long run, if you are starting from scratch now.


If you already have all of the brake parts, with the exception of the bearing retainers , I have a set that I will draw you the dimensions of, and you can fab them up from 3/8 plate. The actual caliper mount is going to be hard to fab.
The caliper mount is actually 2 pieces, the bearing retainer and a seperate caliper mount.


Later, mikey

I've got the retainers the rear is complete exept for bolt on brackets, calipers and rotors, I was thinking of just doing what we do on stock cars. Weld on the speedway brackets and use jeep rotors with gm calipers.But to do this I will have to cut the mounting ears off the bearing retainers I beleive.Wanted to see if any bolt on brackets are out there first.

I know the lincoln calipers that are available from my parts house are $$$$$, (IIRC they were over 100.00 each, rebuilt with a core charge)
So if you don't have the calipers, rotors and brackets already you may be money ahead to use the gm stuff.


BTW, if you do go looking for junkyard calipers, know that the town car calipers look very close the same, and will fit the bracket, except the piston is 2.5" .You can tell the difference externally though, the town car castings are smooth around the piston while the smaller Versaille castings have some square ribs cast in.


The town car calipers are WAY too big for use with a GM front caliper.
