Mine ar cobra up front. 13" rotor. Had to use a thin spacer though as the wheel made contact on the COBRA lettering on the caliper. Friend of mine had the same issue but took a grinder to the caliper... not for me. My rear are still drum. I'll go disc later

Very nice pics guys. I could've used these a couple of months ago when I was daydreaming about getting mine.

Edit: can y'all share your suspension info? Great ride height on both and I'm in the middle of lowering mine. Would love to hear what you did to get them so right.

Pro's & con's of Ramblers 17"? (I'm thinking 17x7 front, 17x8 rear).

Especially experiences of those that have had them a while?
TY,

Hey Joe, It's been a couple of months and I'm wondering if you got those wheels..if so how about a good side shot to see if there's a noticeable difference in the 7" fronts and 8" rear..because I'm thinking I may go with
7 front and 9 rear....Thanks

What's it take to get SN95 brakes on a 65? Did you do a write up, or is there one somewhere?

Mine are sn95 cobras.. easy kit to get them installed. Mustangsteve.com sells the brackets, hub rings, etc for the swap. As for what brakes you get... it's up to you. He has kits for cobra, 2012 style GT caliper brackets. He also has power brake setups and suggestions.
