Hi everbody: I'm new to the forum and Pontiac ownership. I recently bought a '61 Catalina Sport Coupe from a friend of mine's dad. It has stock manual drum brakes. First thing I want to do is make sure I have the best brake shoes possible on it. I am planning to add a power brake booster set up from Master Power Brakes later. There are many choices of brake shoes, but other than Raybestos organic, their composition details are lacking. The car has '63 style 8 lugs on it. My thought is to use semi metallic shoes for a little better stopping and better heat pull out of the hubs rather than organic shoes. The car is not going to see a lot of miles and I live near Ft. Worth, TX so hot weather is more of a concern than cold. It sure needs to have the best brakes it can. It was a little scary the first time I drove it. Any suggestions with specific part numbers for both front and rear shoes would be most appreciated.
