Camarillo, California based company Wilwood Brakes has released its new and improved C2 Corvette Tandem Master Cylinder, which is designed for use in C2 Corvette restomod projects with modern-day disc brakes.
Wilwood says its redesigned C2 Corvette Tandem Master Cylinder features the correct pushrod length and clevis thread size for direct mounting to the original equipment pedal that comes stock in the 1963 to 1967 model year C2 Corvette. The master cylinders are also offered in two bore sizes to provide the correct volume and pressure output to complement different Wilwood big brake kits.
While these aftermarket tandem master cylinders are designed to work in conjunction with Willwood big brake kits, they can also be used to upgrade 1963-64 drum brake cars to a tandem circuit, or to lower braking effort and improve pedal feel in 1965-67 C2 Corvette models equipped with manual disc brakes. The master cylinders are available with either a media-burnished polished-look finish or a glossy black e-coat and feature a different casing than the more rounded shape of the older Wilwood tandem master cylinder. The C2 Corvette Tandem Master Cylinder is available now and retails for $351.72.
