HI

I'm pulling my 66 riv out of the garage after 10 years.
The kids are done with school so I have a couple of bucks to get back into my car.
I've owned it to 15 years now.
It has the 425 motor has been rebuilt as has the Turbo 400.
Body is in great shape, car came from Texas and has been garaged at my house in Mass.
I want to convert the front brakes ( single bowl master cylinder drums all around) to disc up front with a new dual Master.
Can anyone recommend where I could find a good unit such as this?
A few quick google searches hasn't lead to many results or options.

Thanks !

Hi Shaug,

There's an AACA forum, where you can find a similar topic. Here's what I found: forums.aaca.org/topic/221099-63-riviera-dual-master-conversion-help
You may also ask your question in Classic cars section. These guys often helped me with my 1998 Camaro z28.

Shaug,
Where in MA are you located, if you don't mind me asking.
If you don't want to put on the open forum just PM me.
Click on my name and you should see how to PM or even email me.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Rick
