pinto brakes

Mustang II and pinto's share a lot of parts, You can use any of the 11 in brake rotor kits sold thru a lot of suppliers, Some mustang II and I think Pinto wagons came with 8 in rear ends and 4 bolt wheels, You can swap out axles shafts and brake drums to have 5 bolt wheels. I don't know if the Maverick 5 bolt rears are are a direct bolt in. There is a lot more info on the ford rodders web sites. Some of the very early ford 9 in are narrow enough to bolt in.
