WELCOME ..........

We have a lot of rodders here and the Mustang II front end is a very popular upgrade they have used.
Master Power Brakes........in North Carolina has a excellent page on Master cylinders.It is here.....


They also sell everything you will need .....
I have used their parts with good success. I used them because they are close to me. There are others who may use other suppliers....which may do as well.

As the Moderator here.........let me again WELCOME YOU HERE.....

Thanks for the information, I looked at MP's site. My concern is that the pedal
length for their Universal kit's pedal length is 12", the Studebaker's is around 18". Dont know if this will be problem or not.

I had a 79 Tbird for a donor car when I did my 53 Ford car. I used the under the dash support structure and used the power booster and m/c from the same car. It fit well under my stock dash, I located it so the booster would clear the 351M engine also from the Tbird and used the Tbird steering column with a custom wheel. It was actually a fairly easy thing to do and solved a lot of fab work and saved a lot of money.
