Yes, you made a good trade. Looks great, just make sure the steering and brakes are safe before you start driving it. Dual master cylinder and front disc would be a good place to start.

Will SOMEONE please tell me what's NOT safe about a NON dual Bowl Master cylinder????????????????????????????????

My falcon has uses one for 50+ years without any problems...
Really? You need to ask. I would not use one on a daily driver when you can have a safer system. There is a reason why it was changed in 1967. I suppose you still have front drum brakes no seatbelts and bias ply tires. Why not improve the safety when it is so easy to do.

Yea definitely changing the master cylinder first. Im sure it would be ok to keep but I just don't like the idea of blowing a break line and not at least having some brakes to slow down.

Can you guys recommend me a place to get a front disc conversion kit. I don't want to spend a ton but i dont want junk either. What about a brake booster and master cylinder kit im not really into not having power brakes.

I would give Dan a call at CHOCKOSTANG.COM or CSRP. I would try and use the Factory style Kelsey Hayes disc brakes with the Raybestos 36440 master cylinder and an adjustable proportioning valve.
