Brakes Upgrade

I am looking to upgrade my rear brakes on a Big Block (466) 65 Mustang,and have been out of the game for a while, and would like to know if anyone has experience with both Baer brakes, and Wilwood brakes. If you have an opinion and would like to share it, i am interested in knowing.

I've not dealt directly with Baer stuff but I hear its great. I have installed some Wilwood kits, both race and street and I can say they are absolutely incredible.

Why not a rear disc conversion from a Ford Explorer?

Baer Brakes

I have been out of the game a while, so I never even considered an explorer setup. I wasn't aware it was an option. One other fact about this car, maybe two......The car has a big block in it, so I do need stopping power. It is a 65 Mustang, and is featured in the January 2006 issue of Mustang and Fords, and this car is built more like a street rod, than a Mustang. JV

Baer Brakes

One last thing, this car has disc brakes, but they are the Lincoln Versailes set up. Heavy and ineffective at high speeds, where I do venture occasionally....JV
