Crown Vic Front Rotors on '67?

Hi Guys,

I've only seen one thread on this, but am trying to find more information surrounding the use of the 12" Crown Vic rotor with PRB Calipers. I have a '67 FB with factory disc, but want to move up to a larger diameter rotor and modern caliper. I saw the Vintage Venom had once offered a kit, but is now out of business. Can anyone tell me what year Crown Vic is the correct one to you? I can just have a friend who's a machinist mill out a bracket for Mustang PBR calipers if no one makes a kit.

Thanks!

Youre lucky enough to have the 4 piston calipers, keep them. You could get some Thunderbird rotors and parts and upgrade your original style. It would use your same mounting plates and was what was done back in the 60s I believe.

Interesting, didn't think about that, thank you. Are the T-Bird K-H Calipers bolt patterns the same as the Mustang's K-H? I know the diameter of the pistons is larger on the bigger cars, but are the calipers similar otherwise? Perhaps I could utilized Street or Track's 12" x 1.25" rotor/bracket and utilize my calipers?

Anyone have thoughts on that?
