killy_4_u Posted July 8, 2015 Share Posted July 8, 2015 (edited) Hello, Does any one know if the Delco Moraine 1-year-only unit on the 1956 Century Riviera was available on the 1956 Special or was this may be a possible upgrade that could be easily done? I have the same question regarding the 1956 Super- I always see these two models with manual brakes, but recently I've seen folks parting them out saying that they have power brakes and wondering if they're worth a look for potential master cylinder harvesting. I want to rebuild mine but don't want to be without my car during the process and it would be nice to have a spare one of these rare things too! I just found not one, but TWO used cores for $150 each! But they're out of a 1956 Buick Super and it's too far away for me to look at. There's a 3rd one too but the canister is pretty rusty so I don't think if it's worth a rebuild. The outfits I've found for rebuilding are the following: $335 – Power Brake Exchange, CA – Michael: 408-292-1305 (+$20 return shipping) $375 – Apple Hydraulics, NY – Lazar: 631-369-9515 (+$40 return shipping) $445 – White Post Restorations, VA – Billy: (540) 837-1140 (+$30 return shipping) Any one know of any one else out there willing to touch this unit? I'm also interested in other folk's upgrades if any one has installed a more modern unit like a booster and remote reservoir that didn't take a whole lot of customization and extra work to the pedal arm, washer fluid reservoir, firewall, air box, etcetera.
