Falcon 4 Stud Disc Brakes

Not only did Ford Australia give inline sixes the 2v intake manifold but in 1965 Falcon came with 4 Stud Disc Brakes,
Specifically cast spindles, they carried Girling calipers and required 14in Wheels to clear the calipers. A remote booster was fitted in the engine bay. These are one set of two I own, the other being in my 66 6cyl Mustang.

Competition improves the breed. Ford USA pumped a motza of money into Ford Australia, with automatic gearboxes getting outsourced to Borg Warner . This was right about the time Holdens and Studebakers were loosing wheels in 500 mile endurances race , having imense implications for costs verses benefits to the consumer. South Bend decided to get out of automobile construction, and GM worldwide was forced by Ford to do a full revamp of all its product lines for safety and ptoduct related gains to keep ahead.

Ford learned that although it had to reduce costs, it also had to make a competitve product. Australian bulldust and unsealed roads practically destroyed the 60-63 Ford Falcon IFS, clutch and braking systems. After the full complement of Fairlane parts were substituted in for 1962, then the new suppliers from bankrupt England were purchased to bankroll new replacements for bankrupt corporations like Lockheed.

Rear disk brakes were ex USA Kelsy Hayes with that awefull shrink ring axle end retainer in the 1973 Falcon GT and the unibody Oz Ford LTD. Girlock made them under licence. Giling and Lockheed combined after bankruptcy. The basic design was Ex Lincoln and Holman Moody Boss Mustang. PBR and GM Holden then got such caning by the Aussie press, it got four wheel disks in 1977 for its lightweight Torana and it was used in the Commodore and 1982 F cars.The 1984 Corvette got a 100% Aussie PBR brake system, and the F cars got Aussie Borg Warner axles.

IMHO, Ford USA started the movement to upgrading stock poverty car brake sysyems.

I was lucky to get two sets of these, one of which is on my 66 Mustang. But as Australian Falcons share the same geometry as those in the U.S they will bolt onto Falcons, Comets and Mustang. Yes the second set is on ebay currently ( and before anyone mentions the price I have on them) they are priced based on rarity and the amount of work gone into making them look the way they do.

For that price you could have included the brake pads.

Brake pads are included, it's hidden at the bottom of my ramblings in the Ebay post.
I'll also be updating the post to include the brake hoses as well.

Adapter unit vs original setup, purely a budget choice, similar to NOS/Original vs aftermarket.
