The two most important safety items on any car are the steering and brakes. You may have already seen our video on how we updated the steering system of the Classic Performance Parts Week To Wicked 1966 Mustang. The next thing to address from the CPP catalog was new brakes for the car.

Thankfully, we had already selected a set of 18-inch Rocket Racing wheels with Maxxis tires, so we had plenty of room to go big on the brakes. CPP set us up with it’s Big Brake Kit for the early Mustang (though they have them for a lot of cars and trucks) that uses 13-inch rotors in the front, 12-inchers in the rear, and four-piston front calipers with integral parking brake in the rear (it comes with a cable too). We used the Granada spindles with a one-inch drop, and a non-boosted master cylinder.

The brakes installed easily, made even easier by the CPP suspension we had already installed on the car, and they work like gangbusters. For more information, or to check out the enormous selection of suspension and brakes parts from Classic Performance Parts, check out the company’s website at ClassicPerform.com.
