Collapsed Brake lines?

I have a 79 Chev pu that I quit driving last year, 'cause of a brake issue.
This is a vehicle that I have not driven with any sort of frequency in the last
five years-since moving to Texas.

Had no idea what had happened--just one day the left front caliper grabbed,
and then would not release.

I just never got around to doing any investigating on this, as I was more concerned with getting the 59 Elky completed.

So-----with posts by OLDGUY 829 and JohnnyR 17, made me think (ouch)
Perhaps a line has collapsed here.

I bought this truck new (i was still 18) and I have over 400k on the clock
Believe it or not--only the 2nd set of front pads--everything else is way old.
Calipers-rotors-hoses.

I was not going to post anything on this until perhaps after replacing the calipers and still having issues.

So I think I will start with just replacing the hoses for now---when I get to it.
So -- thanks guys for the insight.

Bryan
