ID this master cylinder?

Just got this hotrod, 37 Chevy coupe.

Brakes will stop the car in the driveway but no way Im driving this thing...
Brakes are way too weak and slow to stop the car...

Can anyone ID this master cylinder?

I think it may be from the S-10 family.. and the builder converted it to a remote resivoir which is in the trunk.........

Rear end is a 88 S-10 Posi, the shoes, drums, springs etc all look brand new.

Front is the typical Mustang II set up... pads look fine...

Low pedal and very little stopping power...........

I know theres some pressure to the rears cause the brake light pressure switch turns on the brake lights... and while under the car I can pull down on the pedal and feel the resistance in turning the drivers front wheel...

any advice?

Will ad a couple more pics in the following post.
