Re: 1967 Power Front Disk

67's only came with the 4 piston calipers. This design is very similar to that used in C3 vettes, and they are very good brakes.

These calipers are made with the rubber on the piston rather than the bore, so once they rust and start to leak, the only viable option is to have the bores stainless steel sleeved. Vettebrakes and other company's do this and sell the reconditioned calipers on exchange. They will also rebuild and return your caliper if you want to stay with "born with"

You could also switch over to the 69 style single piston caliper. These are auto parts atore available and cheap. You'll also need to change the rubber brake hoses, caliper bracket, and backing plate.
