Notes

Preserving traditional hot rod styling and designs of the past is getting more difficult by the day. In the past, acquiring a set of finned Buick brake drums for your traditional Ford hot rod required hours of rummaging through swap meets and some time on the lathe, machining them down to fit on your 1937-48 Ford spindles - not any longer!

This all-new Buick-style brake drum combines modern design and engineering with the classic stylings of the past. This is not a flimsy cover, but rather a high-quality recreation of the most effective brake drums ever produced. To overcome the inherent design flaws with drum brakes, Buick introduced aluminum front brake drums across all models in 1958. Typical cast iron drum brakes build heat quickly and begin to fade. Hot rodders quickly discovered that the aluminum material and the 45 radial fins radiated heat much faster than cast iron drums. Plus, the weight savings of aluminum made them faster at the drags. 

It wasn't easy to adapt this new technology to their old Ford, though. Machining was required to correct the offset, clearance the hubs and get the right bolt pattern. We've saved you the time, trouble and cost associated with those swap meet parts. This all-new improved design features an increase in strength over the OE Buick drums, a hub-centric center register for improved safety and handling, and the correct offset built in to clear traditional Ford brake setups. Plus, it's computer balanced internally, eliminating those ugly external weights.

These brand new aluminum castings include a steel brake liner and are machined with the proper clearances to fit onto 1937-48 Ford hubs, as well as any 12" x 2" Bendix-style brake configuration with a 5 x 5.5 wheel bolt pattern. They are the perfect addition to any traditional hot rod build.
