Just like the title says, I'd like to see what it takes to put the 14" 2007-2012 GT500 brakes on a 68.
The brakes themselves can be had for alot cheaper then other options.
Things I know:
I know it will require 18" wheels
It will require a spacer of some sort
MustangSteve sells bracket to mount S197 brakes to out spindles
Things I need to figure out:
How much clearance the wheels need to clear the caliper
What backspacing/offset I need for the front wheels to sit properly in our fenderwell
I know some people will complain its not needed/18" wheels are too big, etc.... I want to try it to be different. I already have 13" Cobra brakes with 17" wheels on one car, I'd like to try something different on the fastback. I love the options from SoT and such but i am worried about sourcing pads/rotors down the road for those types of systems. GT500 pads/rotors can be had locally for a normal price.
Some helpful links I found regarding installing these brakes on various models.
Kit to install on an SN95 car:
Link to install instructions from Ford on 05+:
I want to put these on a 68 fastback, manual brakes, it has a SoT Coilover front suspension.
I have seen people put SN95 and S197 wheels on these cars using spacers and kits to use the S197 brakes, but I haven't seen them together much it seems (wheels and brakes on classic).
