The Midland boosters were used on many trucks starting in the 40s, I think. What's interesting is that they were the factory booster on the early 2seat Tbirds. I've never known anyone to have a problem if they were installed correctly. Early on, rodders used to use them since the "conventional" boosters were so big, ugly, and gross.
