spindles

I don;t think so, with your stock spindles anyway
This kit may work with Granada spindles?

" This is A new in the box 1964-1966 Ford mustang disc brake conversion. This conversion uses your original V-8 drum brake spindles. "


I`m having a hard time trying to remember the differences between a 64 Fairlane and a 65 Mustang caliper, both shown under

I would think the only difference would be the steering arm?

you know for maybe $150 more you could get some wilwoods...billet AL calipers and billet sealed hubs and two piece rotors.

I am planning on this route once I finish my body work. I priced out alot of the OEM caliper conversions like that. by the time you add up the parts they need a little extra money will get you the wilwoods. The pads and rotors are very reasonable in price and the calipers are about $120 each (compared to some OEM aluminum calipers that is pretty cheap)

The Wilwoods would be really great but from what I see they`re made for newer Fords and mybe bigger wheels too Confused

I know Roger know alot about this, me I can`t even remember what differs the 65 mustang and the 64 Fairlane spindles if I try too hook on this set in my first post. Due to Tom`s classic they will fit, if not I wonder why Confused

Recieved an answer from Chris at Tom`s Classics today, he says that they have sold several of these kits to happy(!) Fairlane-owners.

brake fit

Man, i'm still doubtful about Mustang spindles being same as Fairlanes
to be absolutely sure, id be asking Bob Mannel at the Fairlane club site, Bob would know for sure!
I know for a fact Bob highly recommends the Scarebird kit for our Fairlanes as one of the best disc brake kits on the market for stock spindles

I do not think the spindles are the same, just wondering if this brakekit really would fit both as they claims.

Per Wilwood, they do not offer a kit for the '62 - '65 Fairlane.
"Send us your spindles and we will make you a set"

However, after cross referencing the bearings for a Mustang and Fairlane, mine's a '63, I found that the Wilwood kit for a '69 Mustang with drum spindles (if memory serves correctly) would fit. I and purchased the kit and it fit picture perfect after shimming the caliper to center it.
