MC for disc/disc with 7" booster?

Looking for a donor setup for my 41. Can't be bigger than 7" to fit under the hood. I have 4 wheel drums, so I can use Disc/disc (or Drum/drum, but that appears to be impossible), just not the typical Disc/drum that's so easy to find. Anyone happen to know which cars came with Disc/Disc? Assume it would have to be a ricer to have the small booster.

How about a Chevette ...

Yes, I said Chevette, not Corvette ...
A few of the nicer Chevettes had a Power Brake Booster and they are 7 inch diameter. The master cylinder is for disc on the front and drums on the rear.

I forget the exact year. I robbed the entire setup ... booster, M/C and pedal ... used it in a early F1 pickup.

re: MC for disc/disc with 7" booster?

Deuce. I hear you. I have the complete setup from a chevy Metro. Fits great, easy mods, but it is also the disc/drum setup. What i'm hoping is, someone can tell me which cars had optional all wheel disc brakes, so I could hunt one of them down.

Many cars had the same MC for disc/disc and disc/drum setup. They just used another combination valve.
See for example the typical Corvette MC that som many rodders use. It's the same MC no matter what set up they use. It is the combination valve who differ.

To put the disc/drum MC on a drum/drum, you will need to add a 10 lb. residual pressure valve for the front brakes.
