Anyone out there have a front set of calipers for a 68 2+2? The 4 piston caliper? I have a few emails out to different people/places but I would prefer used/needs rebuild to keep the cost down.
And I have the original bucket for the pass side. Looking for a drivers side (with the side seat back lock button) in any shape, again would prefer in rough shape to keep cost down. I have plans on rebuilding them/reupholstering. Thanks
Don't mind shipping if you don't.
Did you check at a place like NAPA or Car Quest? rebuilds are normally the way to go.....
The 66 Chevelle Wagon, I just bought for a friend, has 1970 Monte Carlo disc brakes on it... wonder how that was done?

no 70's truck that I'm aware of used a 4 piston caliper?
Did you check with norm dumontier at Mid-canada Suspension?
he is on chevrier blvd in fortgarry in winnipeg.
He is the man for obsolete brake and suspension parts for everything on the planet.
MY BEAUMONT HAS 4 STUDDED TIRES AND 2 BLOCKHEATERS......AND LOTS OF OIL UNDERNEATH
sounding more like you have a 69/70 front brake set up.
I don't think there is an interchange for the 4 piston caliper/bracket assembly?
You could also try RPM in Saskatoon, a couple years ago I remember them saying they had a set of rebuilt 67 68 4 piston calipers there. Not cheap though for rebuilt ones.

Good idea, Norm DuMontier knows his stuff - give him a call.

At the recent Winnipeg swap meet, there was a guy selling a complete setup, 4 piston calipers, rotors, spindles, brackets. I don't know what it originally came off of. He was asking $400. The calipers would have had to been rebuilt, rotors were probably junk. I left it there. I kinda kick myself for not being a bit more aggressive on it.

Take a picture of the bracket holding the caliper, and measure the rotor diameter. If 11", it's some kind of aftermarket setup. 11.75 and it's oem of some sort.
A simple shot of the bracket and the back of the spindle will tell the tale.
