Brand new in the boxes, front and rear Wilwood set-ups for 65-69 Mustang. $650 per axle, includes shipping, plus extra pieces you usually have to order separately like braided stainless lines and a proportioning valve.

Yep, 5 lugs front and back. Wilwoods attach to your existing spindle in front and the existing rear axle housing in back...so there is no steering change whatsoever. You DO need to start with v8 stuff though.

Actually, you wish you had 1300, you want to do both sides.

To my knowledge the only requirement is 15" rims. It don't think it would change the offset, especially on the rear because you are using your existing axles.

Is that just for the calipers, or does it include rotors and pads? Also, does it include the master cylinder? Is it for a street car, or the drag race only Wilwoods? What are the part numbers on the calipers?

They are complete kits with everything needed, the rotors, calipers, pads, mounting brackets, washers, bolts, instructions, WILWOOD stickers, seals, stainless braided lines, proportioning valve, etc. It does NOT come with a master cylinder. They are listed as Pro-Street kits. kit #140-4304-B, front, 11.75" vented rotor. Caliper #120-6816.
Kit #140-6295, rear, 12.19" rotors, caliper #120-6806.

$650 buys the complete FRONT kit, delivered to your door.
$650 buys the complete REAR kit delivered to your door.
Buy BOTH for $1300 and you get the stainless lines and proportioning valve at no extra charge. We paid almost $1600 for all this, all of it is still brand new in the packaging with a 5 page itemized list of all the components.

I was looking at the instructions on Wilwoods web site. If I found the right ones, it looks like you have to drill out the spindle bracket to attach the mounting brackets. Am I reading that correctly? Can you drill and tap the new holes on the car?

I remember seeing that part in the instructions, but I believe it said on some cars you have to do it, not all.
And yes, you can do it with the spindle still on the car.
