Looks 'un'surprisingly similar to the adapter-plates I made some years ago, first a set for my '64 NY, and later used this set as mockup for a pair for my '60 and '62 NY'ers.

What calipers did you use with your mounts?

Things are coming along slowly.
Still waiting to get the caliper plates sorted but in the meantime have been making progress.

Trial fit up looks like the extension housing should work fine

 

Plenty of room for everything and access

 

Had to make some mods to the housing as for some reason the firewall studs are shorter inboard than outside.

I wasnt expecting that as I assumed they were bolts.

Ive seen some chat about unsprung weight so out of curiosity (and boredom) I weighed the old wheel assemblies and the new SSBC replacement parts to compare.

The SSBC, even with its iron 4 pot calipers, comes in at about 10 lbs LIGHTER than original equipment.

I measured the originals in a hobby box and the SSBC in a larger crate with all the packaging materials and they came out 7 lbs lighter, so in the same box and all the packaging removed Im guessing at around 10 lbs.

Although they arent Wilwoods, the SSBC still provide huge unsprung weight loss over standard.

looking forward to this project.

Weight maybe lower but it will no make much difference in the overall weight of the car. Now the 500 pound difference with the Plymouth volare brakes is another story.
I'm with the SSBC set up so far, so I hope it works.

Agreed, there was just discussions in other threads that the SSBC may be even heavier and having more unspung weight than original and that Wilwood was the way to go with aluminium calipers.
I just wanted to check for my own curiosity if that was the case or not and clearly it is not.
Still a great unsprung weight saving over stock.

Hopefully wont be much longer before its back together. :-)

So what is the exact weight of the SSBC Disk/hub assembly, brackets, calipers and all the axle (unsprung) hardware that is needed to install?
