9x2 Brake Drums

For you owners of '62 & '63 Chevy II's you know that the brake drums are non-existant as a new replacement unit. The 9x2, 4on4 bolt pattern is unique to these two years. For the following list of drums which have the required 9x2 dimension, you'll have to drill your own wheel stud holes for the necessary 4 on 4 bolt pattern. I don't think I need to add that accuracy is of prime importance.

It should be added I have no first hand experience with these drums and have collected this list for someone who was searching for drums for their Chevy II.

I've recieved a link for a company which provides a variety of hard to get brake parts (and other auto parts), including 9x2 4 bolt brake drums. Check it out and let me know if you have used them. Samson Best Auto Parts located in Massapequa, New York.
