A HAMB member in San Diego is doing these .Looks like a clean modification.


1932 Ford hydraulic brake master cylinder bracket. No drilling, no engineering, no welding, no cutting required when converting from mechanical to hydraulic brakes. Bracket mounts to k-member utilizing original holes and locates master cylinder utilizing original 32 pedals. Your brake pedal will need some modification

I have the original off my car. I will post when I can.

Edit Here are some pics. The original was damaged so I installed a later common handle

Rotorwrench and Charlie - Thanks for the tip on the wheel spacers. I pulled one of the wheels off this morning to check and there weren't any spacers there. I'll get some on the way.

deuce_roadster - I met the previous owner about 6 years ago at a local car show when he was looking at my '39 Ford. I saw him again about 3 years ago and just happened to ask him if he knew anyone who had a '32 3 window. He told me he had one, but it wasn't for sale. He lives about 15 minutes from and I have gone to see the car a few times since then. When it came available I jumped on it.

Have to agree. I understand tweaking the pedal positions but otherwise..... Do nothing!

Congrats on the 32. Your car is a beauty.

I recently purchased my 40 convertible from a friend of mine. He also had a 34 3 window for sale and I decided on the 40.
