    Scarebird closing...

    Just heard that Scarebird is shutting down.. maybe everyone knows this already?

    Scarebird Classic Brakes LLC offers quality conversion brackets that require no spindle modifications, and use quality, inexpensive off-the-shelf parts available from your local NAPA or Autozone - and through discount internet suppliers such as RockAuto.com.

    Sucks, we just lost Moates too. They make the EEC-IV programmers that allow tuning of pretty much any fox body.

      I loved using the EEC-IV because it wasn't bogged down with the task of controlling turn signals and alternators.

      I'm particularly sad to hear about Scarebird. I use their products because they are exceptionally well made. Their brake caliper brackets were welded into one piece, instead of an erector set of components that are bolted together (with the potential to loosen). - Dave

        I looked on their website this week for the caliper brackets for my 59. An email confirmed that they are no longer offered. Has someone used another supplier with good results?

          A further update on the Closing of Scarebirds.org business. Here is what their website is now stating. Thank you Voyce for the update.

          Scarebird Classic Brakes LLC offers quality conversion brackets that require no spindle modifications, and use quality, inexpensive off-the-shelf parts available from your local NAPA or Autozone - and through discount internet suppliers such as RockAuto.com.


          Due to latent supply constraints from Covid-19, we have decided to shut down operation effective end of 2022. Items still listed are available - those not listed will not be replenished.​

          Scarebirds only lists the Disc Brake Conversion kit for the 1949-53 Ford Front Disc and 1955-1957 Tbirds. Also 1960-66 Falcon Hubs. Apparently, the 1958-1960 Tbird Front Disc kits have all been sold and will not be replenished.
