The master cylinder NEEDS to be matched to the front brakes and the rear brakes.....and I remember you wanting to use a disc brake Camaro rear........so the Caprice ( which had rear drum brakes ) is NOT the correct one. With a disc brake upgrade on the front and rear....you will need a master cylinder designed for disc brakes on BOTH ends.....

The Caprice column may work.......but are large, bulky and unattractive IMHO.

A lot of rodders use the Chevy/GMC van tilt column....it is smaller, NO key in the column and has a neutral start switch mounted on it. They also have the gear shift selector indicator on it ( lighted )...

I have one in my 32.....
