    Does anyone have any information regarding "upgrading" the front drum brakes on a Long wheelbase 250 GT California to rotors / calipers. Any help would be appreciated, like what has to be changed, part numbers etc. I seem to recall there may have been a factory mod, but my records don't go back to the 50's.

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Hi Malcolm

    you need to speak to David Cottingham at DK engineering, or Mark lyons and kevin jones at GTO engineering. They'll both have parts and experience in stock.

    Before you wade in too deep, A surprising amount of improvements can be made to the drum brakes too.....just see some of the Shell historic cars stop!! Fairly easy and cheaply too.....
