Default 49 wagon brake drum

Looking for a pair of Rear Brake Drums for a ’49 Wagon (I think they are different than the sedan rear drums). New (or used drums that can be turned a couple of times) would be fine. Suggestions for other alternatives would also be welcome. Thanks.

First off, thanks for the “welcome to the Barn” comments and the replies to the thread. I appreciate it. I’m currently away from the car for awhile but when I get back I’ll pull the wheels off and look at & measure the drums. I’ll double check what I find against the ‘stock’ part numbers in the Ford Manuals. In the meantime, if anyone has further thoughts or comments, I’d welcome the input.

Why do you think you need drums?

The last time a shop checked the brakes they indicated that the drums could not be turned again. At this point, if shoes or any wheel cylinders need to be replaced, a shop may not (because of liability) want to do any work if the drums are out of spec.

I got a pair of brake drums for a '56 Ford from a company called Master Power Brakes, www.mpbrakes.com, 888-251-2353. Might have what you are searching for.
