RE: Three Inch Drums
I read an article about the 1959 thunderbird nascar entry about 5 or more years ago where one of the modifications holoman / moody had done was to use spindles and brakes off a lincoln which had the 3 inch brakes. So as a guess i would say yes and that might be where the bullet birds get their brakes, (ford saving money). If anyone on this site has a list of the mods done to these cars i would sure enjoy seeing it posted. I have searched the net in the past but could not find a detailed list of the mods. I also read in the same article that durring that year one of the thunderbirds came out of the race due to frontend problems.
