IMPORTANT NEWS AS OF 9-18-16 ‼
Hey, we're back in the rear disc brake business! After a 5 year absence our fantastic 65-69 rear disc brake kits are back on the market! We're able to offer them to you because we now have some parts reproduced that we previously had to scour the wrecking yards for.
Rear disc brake kit for 1965-69 cars! You've been waiting for a well designed, easy to install system and this one is ready! Kit is available several ways -
PLEASE SPECIFY whether you need the kit for 1965 or 1966-69 models.
IMPORTANT! Before you order - Please understand that these kits use numerous parts from numerous suppliers. The kit also involves multiple machine operations and multiple parts suppliers - Usual turnaround time will be 6-8 weeks BUT could be longer if we run into component shortages. So why put up with these possible delays? Because this is the only production kit on the market that allows you to use 14" wheels, looks like it could be stock and is simple in it's design and execution.
Because of the unique difficulties sometimes encountered with delivery of this great kit we are sorry to announce that we cannot ship these to Canada (or any other foreign country). Why? Because we oftentimes have to ship the kits in multiple boxes from multiple locations. Add the weight of most of these components and you end up up either, with a huge shipping bill, or us not wanting to ship until we have everything at our location to ship in one or two packages. This has gotten us into trouble in the past with 2 Canadian customers. We are not here to upset our customers and damage our reputation, we're here to sell Corvair parts and have happy customers.
If you are one of our loyal Canadian customers and want one of these kits, please try to have them delivered to an address in the lower 48. We're always happy to serve your needs, but in this case, discretion is the better part of valor.
CORES - Depending on which kit you order core charges may be involved. In some cases we may not have the necessary cores and may require you to sent your cores in advance to be machined. Just ask what our current core situation is when you order.
"A" KIT - Vented rotors, calipers, backing plates, adaptors, steel brake lines, re-machined arms, e brake bracket - for both sides. You supply the rear wheel bearing assembly (o.d. of spindle hub needs to be turned - a simple operation on a brake lathe).. There will be a core charge for your arm.
U-6099 Cost - $799.00 plus core + (core is for arms - $125.00)
"B" KIT - Same as A kit but includes new torque arm bushings (not installed), 1 pair of flexible brake lines, 8 stabilizer rod bushings, 2 rear wheel bearing rebuild kits, 8 longer rear wheel studs.
U-6100 Cost - $1157.00 plus core + (Core for arms is $125.00)
"C" KIT - Same as B kit but includes a completely rebuilt and modified rear wheel bearing assy (both sides, of course) and also includes new trailing arm bushings (installed). All components are complete and ready for simple assembly.
IMPORTANT! - There has been some misunderstanding as to whether or not we can ship these arms and bearings as a completed assembly. This is not practical because of their size and weight. You WILL have to put these together yourself but it's not difficult. Instructions included.
U-6101 Cost - $1299.00 plus cores (cores on arms$125.00 and rear bearing assemblies $110.00 for 65 type $130.00 for 66-9 type. )
"D" KIT - Just the backing plates, e brake adaptors, special adaptor brake lines and remachined arms. No rotors or calipers included. It's like an "A" kit above, otherwise.
U-6099D $480.00 (Core for arms $125.00)
EMERGENCY BRAKE CABLE ASSY - So far these special cable assemblies have been very expensive to have made in limited quantities. Please note that the E brake cable assy is NOT included in any of the above prices. It is listed as an option only and the current cost is $140.00. It's a beautifully made assembly but we will continue to work to get the cost down on it!
