    1949 and 1950 Chevrolet Cars used a Huck Brake System and have a 5 lug bolt pattern where as 1948 and older have Huck Brake System but have a 6 lug pattern. Being that the Brakes shoes for 1949 and 1950 are a 2 year window, unfortunately they have not been reproduced at this time. You will need to have your shoes cleaned up and relined.



    I have a 50 chev rear end with drums, I put a 9″ Ford in, sell you the whole thing for $50.00 Gary 503 931-3177< I’m in Bend



    Chevs of the 40s advertise brake drums for models up to 1948 and then again from 1951 on. Can’t see a mention for 1949 brake drum availability?
    Can anyone advise if there is comparable models Pre 1949 or Post 1950/51 where rear brake drums in particular are interchangeable with my 1949 Styleline Sedan?
