Has anybody ever heard of a brake option on 72 Fords' called (I think)'Sure Track' brakes. I believe they were a primitive version of the modern anti-lock brakes. I saw a repair section for them in a '1972 preliminary new car shop manual'. I also believe that any cars equipped with them may have been recalled and had the system disconnected. They were also standard on new Lincolns that year. Any body have any info?

They were on Lincolns. It had a sensor on the driveshaft at the rear flange. I think it was something like the RABS [rear anti-lock brakes] that on the F series trucks today. It was a troublesome system and most of them were disconnected. I don't remember them ever being recalled. RAY

Have you ever seen them on a Mustang? I saw the repair procedures for them in the Ford/Mustang manual, but I've never seen them on an actual Mustang.

Ditto on Lincolns, and also on pre 77 T-Birds.
