Wilwood's New Tandem Chamber Master Cylinder
Wilwood's new tandem chamber master cylinder represents the latest refinements in brake pressure actuation and fluid control. These master cylinders add that extra look and style your ride demands. They're perfect for classic pickups, hot rods, street rods, customs, and more. The slotted flange mounting also makes it a simple bolt on for many OE mounts, including the popular Chrysler, Corvette, GM, and Ford Mustang bolt patterns. Bore sizes include 7⁄8, 1, or 11⁄8 inches, making it compatible with manual or power brake system applications. This new master cylinder comes in standard aluminum finish, or you can choose an optional bright burnished finish to complete that show-truck look. A black anodized, machined billet lid captures a pressure-balanced bellows gasket with 100-percent sealing against moisture invasion or fluid leakage.

Coker Tire Offers Whitewalls in Modern-Sized Radials
Throughout automotive history, the whitewall tire has been one of the most popular choices on everything from luxurious Cadillacs to classic trucks. As time went by, the whitewalls got narrower, offering clean looks with the same undeniable style.

The difference in the new line of American Classic tires is the variety of sizes available, making them an option for any truck or car enthusiast. The new tires are steel-belted radials, so it's a step up from the bias-ply tires of yesteryear, but they display the classic styling of a thin whitewall. Thoroughly developed and made in the USA, the new American Classic tires feature an all-weather tread design for optimum performance on wet or dry surfaces and they are S-rated, which is good for 112 mph. Available in over 30 sizes and configurations, ranging from 14- to 17-inch wheel diameters, these tires are great for classic pickups to modern muscle cars.
