Here's a start. They should have original, but now might be the time to upgrade to disk over drum. Huge difference when I upgraded my GTO.

Let me make sure I understand what you are looking for here....



You want a power brake booster and master cylinder combo to work on an 8-lug drum '62 GP? Did I get that right? Are you looking to upgrade the car to 8-lug disc brakes too?



Have I got that right?
