I put the AAJ kit on my 57 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer. Aside from my friends at the local part store ordering the wrong parts, the installation was a breeze. I spent more time cleaning off 45 years of gunk than it took to install the brake kit. The calipers are off a mid 80's Caprice, so there should be plenty of stopping power for most any 50's Mopar. I have not got to the master cylinder yet, but it will get updated to a more modern split unit. I'm looking at a master cylinder from a 79 Aspen with manual disc brakes. Not a bolt on though. I haven't been able to road test the new brakes yet due to a blown head gasket.
