Post Front brakes

I have a 1940 Chevy that I want to put a new brake kit on. I am having trouble determing what the existing non-original front end is. The rotors are 11" with a 5 on 100mm bolt pattern. There is a GM stamp on the back of the rotor. I have not been able to find anyone who can tell exactly what I have in order to buy a kit. Any suggestions on what I have or finding out what I have?

This is a long way around but, you might hit up your favorite old time parts guy that is good with a micrometerz and good with the moog parts book.

The other idea is to hit up your local tire dealer 4 on 100mm is a imprort of some type, I sold wheels long time ago, and don't remember alot of it any more, but you have got a idea it might be a import,GM is a definet thing so that might lead you towords GM imports, Geo, Izuzu, Suzuki, and whom ever else they snuck in over the years.

5x 100mm?? You skipped a stud, and measured across? The camaro has a 5x 4.75 pattern, and some mopars, I think had a 4.5, back in the 60's and 70's. All I got..
