Is there any way to tell 1967 Mustang front brake calipers from 65/66 front brake calipers. I know its to do with the flexi pipes, but is there an easier way casting number mabe ?

I have a 67 the calipers are on the car its driving on the road. I want to order some Russels braided brake hoses. I want to check I actually have 67 calipers before ordering.
Its not exactly a numbers matching car
Any help is much appreciated

'67 should be 4 piston Kelsey Hayes. I don't think the 65/66 were those. '68 switched over to 2 piston units. Hope this helps.

65/66 were definitely 4 piston KH's too and appear similiar to the 67's. They are interchangeable amongst the 3 years if the right brake hose is used.

As mentioned by Alan, the primary difference from 65/66' to 67' is the size of the brake hose fitting where it attaches to the caliper. One is 3/8" (probably the 65/66) and the other is 7/16", IIRC. The part that connects to the main brakeline is the same dimension in all years, including drum brake models. Other differences are in the tin brake pad supports and the piston seals. I believe the small brake line that connects to 2 halves is different too.
