brake drums

Any ideas where I could get rear break drums for a '57 servi-car?
They seem to be hard to find. Isn't there any repro parts available?
I live in Europe so I'm mainly looking to buy them from here.

Re: brake drums

I have heard rumors that they were Jeep drums and another says they are from a forklift.

Yes I believe Jeep Drums from the late 40's to 50's are the same.

Re: brake drums

Ok, thanks for replies. I try to find a local Jeep parts dealer.
I'll let you know if the parts match.

Re: brake drums

The servi-car rear brake drums are a 2 piece drum. It has a hub that the axel uses. It has a hole of 3.125 inches, and the Jeep has 2 drums that is 9.5 overall , like the Harley, but the hub's are 4 inch, and 3, and 5/8, neither will fit the harley hub... Chasing rainbow's on this one....I called Willis Jeep and varified :(

Re: brake drums

Do you mean Willys Jeep? Willys has been out of business for a very long time.

Re: brake drums

I ended up taking the old drums to a local shop where they were turned.
