    I have seen this same slave cylinder setup on late fifties Lincolns and T Birds.

    Both cars are just beautiful.

    I had an uncle that had a new ‘66 Dart 270 hardtop with 273 V8 painted the same deep red, one of my favorite colors. Oddly my first car back in ‘71 was a ‘67 Dart 270 hardtop with 273 V8, and the same color as well.

    Happy motoring gentleman, drive’em with pride!



    Syed, is your new Dart friend going to join the board?

    I would say that a 1966 Dart 270 and a Dart GT convertible is rare but in RHD they are way more rare. As Keith said it looks like a 66 Cuda dash.! Good luck with your great cars.

    So, how does that brake setup work?
    I can't seem to get my head around it.

    I've seen Austrailian cars, and al lthe stuff is on the side with the pedal, isn't it?

    I've always wanted an RHD car as well.

    I did get to drive RHD postal jeeps for a few years for a previous job.

    ...and NICE cars!!

    There is a two pot master cylinder mounted on fire wall operated by RHD brake pedal. Front brake circuit is plumbed into a second cylinder mounted on left hand side of fire wall, commonly called a slave cylinder, which articulates front brakes boosted by vacuum assist sending fluid to distribution block and on to both front brakes. Rear brakes are not boosted, and master cylinder rear circuit is connected directly to distribution block where fluid is sent to rear wheel cylinders. The reason for this Rube Goldberg mess is the slant six engine’s head takes up residency where a normal power booster and master cylinder would be located in a RHD vehicle; so all that rigging had to be installed in the usual LHD location.

    Wow, that's an awful lot of trouble for power brakes on a 2000 lb car with a /6!

    Thanks for the explanation.

    In hindsight, I think all the Aus cars I've seen were either stright six or manual brakes.
