Post Please solve the power brake mystery for me

I am building a 40 for with disc in front, drums in rear. I see all kinds of adds for the under floor power booster and master cylinder. I just want to buy the pedal assembly and go to my local parts house to buy the booster and master cylinder. Exactly what year/make/model do I need to ask for, for both. Most parts catalogs are somewhat vague, and only say "mid sixties this or that".

Most of the mid-sixties have the old style large diameter pancake booster. Cross them off your list.
I would look into the 70's Mopars, specifically, Dart Demon Duster Twister Sport-type and size. Mopar used a small diameter booster in this era and probably through today. You'll need to use the unit from a car comparable in weight to your 40 and with calipers and cylinders similar in volume to what you're using. Of course you'll need the valve for the rear brakes as well. Mopar makes a nice adjustable one.
I love technology.
