Scarebird has been around for a while.........Look like good quality brackets. I have a set for my 62, but havn't got around to putting them on yet.

You should change your master cylinder to one for disk/drum brakes

disc brake

I have a similar conversion made by Wilwood on my 67 Camaro. I haven't had any problems with it. The only thing I will say is that they advertise the brakes as being for competition only and they are noisy. OEM brakes usually have shims in them to take up the slack between pads, calipers, and/or brackets. There aren't any on the Wilwood conversion so the pads do "clunk" a bit.
