    I decided to pull the calipers off the 1966 Coronet before it heads off to bodywork & paint. Obviously these are not original - it was a surprise that the car even had disc brakes. I'm replacing the whole front end with another one I'm building. Anyway... Are the KH 86166 calipers worth something to someone, or do I round file them? I'm going to sell the disc brake setup on there right now, so should I keep them with the setup? These are not run as-is surely but may be good rebuild candidates if they are desirable (gut says not).

    Believe the 86166 is the single piston used on '70 RR and Birds.. I'll have to crawl under and take a look when I'm in the shop, couldn't find a picture in my clean up file showing a casting number.

      I'd suggest that if your intent is to "sell the disc brake setup" that the calipers are an
      integral part of said setup...

        Whoever buys it is welcome to all the parts that come off it. I'll just stash them for now.

        Thanks, snook
