11" Finned Drum Brakes

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone out there who makes 11" drum brakes for a 1965/66 Shelby GT350? Tried using the Replicas & Miniatures Co. of Maryland '40 Ford brakes, and they are much too large. Any other suggestions?

Thanks

I make ones modeled after GM drums.  Don't know what these scale up to but you can see there 9/16.

This is what I'm going for, and the drums are smaller than the wheel itself.

This is how big the drum is compared to the wheel.

The brake drums in the '53 Studebaker kit might fill the bill, except they don't have the fins.

I tried them and they said their brakes were too big.

Bummer.

Maybe this is being picky but the drums you have pictured are 10” drums.  You can clearly see where it is stamped “ MAX DIA 10.060,  brake drum sizes are measured by the inside diameter.

Thanks for the heads up on that. 10" will also work.
