Default Emergancy brake mount

How does Factory Five mount the emergancy brake on the tranny tunnel and what parts are used? Is it a E brake out of a Mustang made to work or do they have a brake available?

If you go to and do a search on handbrake you will find a wealth of info.

Yes, FFR's use the emergency brake assembly from a late model Mustang, there is a small hole in the aluminum floor, and a small tab mount for it to bolt down into. I have seen a few of them in A&C chassis'd cars, they do require a mounting tab to be welded into place along with some fiberglass trimming of your mounting area, but I can see no reason why you could not make it work with very little effort. On another note, you can also modify a Fiero (don't laugh) handbrake to work mounted on the drivers side of your drivers seat.......Again, the same welding of tabs and trimming of fiberglass will need to take place.

Hope you find this helpful.

Instead of being part of the problem, be part of a successful solution.
