75 ford montego. it's a disk/drum master cylinder made to work without power brakes.

i've got a new remanufactured one for $15 + shipping. if you're interested, pm me. i bought it and decided to go with rear disks and never used it. they're kind of hard to come by nowadays.

ask the parts guy to look up an older car with the manual brakes and make sure that it had front disc and rear drum. thats what i did and it works fine. (can't remember exactly what it fit anymore,but it was gm).

I recently bought one for a jeep cherokee. It is all aluminum and the brake lines exit on the right hand side. A rebuilt one only cost me about 15 dollars.

Why not just run the one that came on the car? Metric is disc front and drum rear. Just take off the booster.
