We just use the one off a 2nd Gen,,,,,,1967-70,,,,,,they are dual line with drum brakes,,,,,you need to cut out the end of the bracket for the longer master cylinder and lower the sway bar if you have one,,,,,,

Definitely not a '65 Camaro! Haha LOL You guys might need to do a little more research.


Agree with Don, since you are staying with all drums, just use a stock replacement 2nd gen master cylinder, available at your favorite auto parts store. Choose any year 67-70, and request a master cylinder. Should work perfect for what you are doing.
