Seth makes a very good point of why it'd be good to put the dual master 
cylinder conversion on the early's (62-64).  I've had a rear wheel bearing fail and 
the axle come out far enough to clear the brake shoes and instantly "no 
brakes at all".  Fortunately I was in town and going about 20 mph with no cars 
parked along the side of the street and used the curb to stop.  I can only guess 
what would have happened at highway speed in traffic.  Yiikes!!!!!
