Trivia

They appear to be brake drums - even if so many on here say "Break" Drums- as if they actually prefer broken drums!

And they are uni-directional according to the "scoops" on them! Beyond that, I seem to be even more clueless than usual!

LOL, yes they are brakes, these are legendary guys! Back in 1979 I worked at a full on restoration shop and the owner had a set just like these. They are worth a fortune now! In fact, I have owned a lot of cars in my life and only bought a couple of them for more than these brakes now go for.

I think at one time everyone wanted a set of brake drums from a Buick, not sure of the year, or my memory, but maybe 1957.

Read past post dinger already said Buick. mybe olds 57?

They aren't Buick, nor are they any brand of car. They bolt onto a Ford, but they are aftermarket, performance aftermarket.

I can't believe this, these are classic hot rod brakes from the forties. I'll give you this, they are NOT drum brakes, they are disc!

Brian

The disc can be seen on the one on the right.

Well I have never seen them before. As dumb as I am on computers, would have no idea how to call up aftermarket parts from the 40s.

Great question Brian, I know when you start out this should be easy, it's not.

Ding Ding Ding, Kinmont! I have no idea if they are off airplanes, as I said they bolt onto an early Ford and the fronts are different than the rear with the rear so they sure look like Ford axle specific if you ask me.
Here is a lot more photos. http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/s...d.php?t=318921

But you got it Dan, good job, you have the floor.

All righty then, I am going to try to make this difficult. Briggs and Stratton, famous for small gas engines, bought out a company in the early 20th century and used this design for the basis of all their small motors.
A. What was the name of the company?
B. What was the name of the car? (before B&S)
C. What type of body was on this car?
D. How many seats, gears, and cylinders?
All info should be based on the original company that was bought by B&S.

Brian, I remember seeing some of those brakes somewhere, I am going to check it out, I think my old boss had them from my wrecking yard days. He used to race old Model T type of cars, had a lot of old rodding parts but passed away about 2 years ago. Dan
