I am going to buy a brake line kit for my car but there is 2 kits, 1 for pre 2/1/67 and 1 for post 2/1/67. Can anybody tell me when my car was built and whether I should buy the pre or post 2/1/67 kit. Thanks.

I have a 67 FB, here is the door tag info:
63A T 20 14M 74 1 W

Thanks!!

Thanks!!

So, I hope this isn't a stupid question but would that meen that my car was built in 67? Or would it be pre 67. Seems like December would be a late date to build a same year vehicle.

Great, thanks!

I just ordered my brake line kits from NPD. I wonder how they ship those? They are pretty long and need a long box? Thanks for the help.

Joe,

I read somewhere that they actually bend the long lines in a big log radius bend. They are supposed to be very easy to straighten and hard to tell they were ever bent.

Right! The mfr. has tape on the line to show where to bend. It straightens out perfectly. When I did my 65, I tossed every piece of line on the car, except gas line. Fit was perfect.

Very cool. I'm looking forward to getting these on. Plus, I still have the old brake lines in the car, so I'll remove them one at a time and replace them as I go along using the old ones as templates. Thanks for all the advise!
