I know it was done on a 36 cord sedan.

Here's one on my 37 Cord Sedan. The only issue is to have a bracket made for it. Came from JEGS.COM.

With brakes, two cylinders are better than one.

I used a 1969 Cougar/Mustang on my 1937 812 Cord under restoration. I used the original mounting bracket and made a 3 bolt to 2 bolt mounting adapter and had to make a thin tapered shim to move the back of the master cylinder away from the frame. Tom

Not to throw an iron in the fire, but more or less the whole World ran on single master cylinders for 30 to 50 years.

Hi John,

That's true.
However, you need only ONCE to have a brake line rupture to see the wisdom of having a dual system. I know--been there.
BTW--I just sold a 2007 truck with 179,000 miles. The next day a brake line failed. The new owner was able to stop safely.
