Weekly Fun Question - Test Your 71-73 Mustang Knowledge
#1
Lets talk "brakes" this week.

As some of you may be aware, the '71 - '73 mustangs used the same front hub and disc (rotor) with their disc brakes systems. The question for this week deals with what other models/years utilize the same hub and disc. Specifically, the question for this week is:

Identify three (3) different models and/or years Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles that utilized the same hub and disc in their disc braking systems as the 1971 - 1973 mustang.

Who will be the first to respond with the correct responses?

well one would be the cougar and another Torinos of the same years.

Mavericks and comet would be the other 2 i can think of.

The "Cougar" response is correct as all '71 - '73 cougars used the same hub and disc as the '71 - '73 mustangs.

The other responses are incorrect, as stated.

Any other responses?

The '70 Mustang used the same hub and rotor. Not sure if you are counting Mustangs or if you want "other models" like the previously mentioned Cougar.

You are correct, Dave.

The '70 Mustang did in fact use the same hub and rotor as the '71 - '73 mustangs.

I am still looking for a couple more applications.

No, AD.

Thunderbird and LTD are not the responses I am looking for to this question.

Here's another one that shared them: the Ranchero!

I believe the '69 Boss Mustangs also had the upgraded spindle and may have shared the same rotor and hub--but not 100% sure about them being the same.
