Several choices. '65-'66 front disc masters are only single stage fishbowls
'67-up are dual stage If you've retrofitted, then you'll be into new lines from m/c to p/valve and j/block anyway, so I'd go with a later model tandem.

I put a tandem m/c out of an '83 Ranger in my '65 GT (front discs)... plumbing is on the correct (driver's) side, pushrod length is the same (not the case with '67 units, requires an adjustable rod), it's aluminum, looks cool

Once again, the only trick is making your own lines unless you buy all repop '65-66 stuff

1965 GT coupe, 333ci aluminum headed/solid cammed stroker, four speed, 3.70:1 9"

I used the same 83 Ranger M/C on my 65. I already had discs on the front along with the proportioning valve. My stock pushrod fit right in the new M/C. I spent $50 on the whole setup including a line bender and new lines from the M/C. Make sure you get a reducer for the front brakes from the reservoir.

Thanks to M&M advice it was super easy!!
