A defective wheel bearing - Rear Axle Bearing can cause these symptoms. After driving our '54 Caddy about 30 miles a couple of years ago in Canada, the hub got so hot that the brake fluid boiled and we lost braking action until it cooled. Ultimately it turned out to be the left rear axle bearing which was just barely making a sound - detectable only when the car was on a lift and running in gear with the tire spinning.
