If there is no rust on your classic, it is a valuable car (relatively speaking)- go first class and get NEW everything (not reman) after this commitment, go ahead and replace everything- calipers, brake lines etc. etc.- anything done halfway on a fifty year old car will make it almost impossible to make it operative- unless a person just gets lucky- and really, a sixties American car will barely stop itself, anyway- maybe look into custom, upgraded brake systems?
