Speedway Motors Tech Talk Finned Aluminum Buick Brake Drum

6/6/2019

Finned Aluminum Buick brake drums have been found on some of the coolest hot rods for over half a century, but getting that look has always required extensive machine work to the drum and hub to get them to fit. Now, Speedway Motors has made it easy with our all-new 45-fin Buick Brake Drums. Forget about scouring the swap meet looking for crusty old drums, then machining them and re-drilling the bolt-pattern. These are brand new castings that are a direct fit to our Early Ford hubs and our 12 x 2-inch Bendix Brakes. Unlike others on the market, these are the real deal, not covers that are just there for looks. Speedway Motors has what you need to get that timeless hot rod look without all the work!
