Recently purchased my second classic, this time my favourite tri-five 1956. Just like the lines, mine is a 56 Delray 210 2 door sedan. She is all original and needs some TLC, but was previously on the road and visiting local car shows. Bombing done the road with the inline 6 cylinder three on the tree, four wheel drum manual brakes stops but scary. Recently upgraded the front spindles and brakes to disc along with power booster and dual master cylinder. Next on my list is rocker panels, and some quarter panels.

Funny how all-of-the-sudden these cars as built with 6 cyl and drum brakes is "scary". It's called "maintenance". Get your stock system up to snuff and it will function just fine. Never had a problem driving my manual drum brake '56. But then, I did rebuild the entire system and got it up to spec. You can't just hop into a 65-year-old car and assume the brake system is going to perform at the top of its game.
