Front brake rotors for 71-73 pintos
« on: August 21, 2019, 08:43:15 PM »
Hi..

Just a suggestion to all of the folks who have updated the front brake and suspension systems on theri cars to more modern technology..

There are a few of us who still have the original equipment and are looking for the early rotors.

So if you have an early car and replace the front brakes, we would appreciate discussing making you an offer on your used hand me down rotors..

Thanks

Ed

The ones that came off my '72 are just gathering dust and won't likely get used for anything. I'll have to measure to make sure they can still be turned.
'72 Runabout - 2.3T, T5, MegaSquirt-II, 8", 5-lugs, big brakes.
'68 Mustang - Built roller 302, Toploader, 9", etc.

Hi..

I saw that post awhile back but just thought that if folks are replacing the oem brKes with upgraded units they might have good used oem rorors that others could use and instead of scrapping them we could make them available to others who might need them.
