57 fairlane disc brake conversion

Recommended Posts

Does anyone make a kit for conversion to disc brakes for this car?I just got the car last summer & want to stop when I hit the pedal.This will be my first real improvement on the car.I'm going to put a new interior in her in the spring.She has a 292 & I'd really like to put a 3X2 set up on is this doable or to much for a stock 292 are the parts even available?Thanks in advance for your help!

There's actually a pretty easy conversion that has been covered in the Y-block Club publications that uses slightly modified Grenada spindles--very low buck and works well. The problem with most of the aftermarket conversion kits is that you have to use 15" wheels--this lets you use stock 14" wheels with no problem. I think if you punch in "1957 Ford disc brake conversion" on Google, you'll get all the info you need.
