    Here's a question; I just saved a pedal assembly along with the brake booster and master cylinder from a 96 Firebird we scrapped. I'm thinking of using it for the Plymouth but the Firebird had antilock brakes. Does anyone know if there would be a difference in the booster/mastercylinder for the antilock system that would cause problems with a standard front disk/rear drum setup?

    I am not 100% sure on this but I dont think it matters because I know on newer trucks like S10's and full size Chevy trucks people bypass the ABS system all the time as if it weren't even there (because chevy's abs in their trucks are junk IMO).
    Hopefully someone can chime in here with a answer because I am curious on it.
    As for the fleetline above, that thing is nice. I hate looking at these cars because it reminds me of my 48 Chevy coupe that my dad recently gave to someone while I was out of town. Rust free car with extra hoods, dashes, fenders, doors, trim, 79 Z28 front sub, etc. I get so angry every time I look at these cars.
    Good luck on your car Falconvan. BTW, are you still on that plymouth site I told you about a while back ago? I haven't been on it in a long time and need to get my 46 Chrysler going.

    Yeah, I still tune in there. Those guys know their early Mopar stuff. How's the 46 coming along? Your dad gave a car away without asking you first? That's a drag, what did he do that for?

    Falcon I would believe the Mc and booster still work in normal fashion . They are just connected to a control system that will pulsate the brake system . Like FMX said they do get bypassed because of expense to repair .

    My first car was a 48 Plymouth two door. It was 1959 and I was 16 and I paid $125 for it. I drove it for 4 weeks and got 3 speeding tickets. My mother sold it.

    Sounds like mom was one tough cookie! How much did a speeding ticket cost in 1959?

    I don't know the cost, mama paid it. Yeah she was a tough cookie; she taught school for 30 years and kept me in tow. She got me a job at Shorty Stevens Esso station when I was in the 7th grade. Shorty paid me $2.00 a day and I found out 25 years later mama was giving Shorty the money to pay me. Shorty was getting some free help (not much) and I was kept busy greasing cars, learning how work worked, and out of trouble.

    I gave myself a father's day present and spent a few hours on the 48 after my grandson went home. He's just too much fun. Here he is pushing me on his bike; I think I'm a little too big for it! I got the right patch panel behind the door put in and a new inner brace. It came out OK; I got the gap a little too big on the front edge but it's fixable.
