Front Brakes

Someone wants to buy my early 1972 front calipers and put them on a 1973. Can they do this? I know they are different and I'm sure no one has ever wanted to do this but maybe someone out there knows.

Thanks,
Al

They will need the 70-early 72 struts and brake rotors, if they want to use the calipers. The plane that the mounting ears sit in is different. The rotor, strut, and caliper all changed. I believe he'll need the early ball-joint, too, to make it work.

Having just done the BMW 320i upgrade where you machine off 1/8" to fit the 73' cars, couldn't you do the opposite by welding 1/8" spacers to the strut mounting flanges so they would bolt right up? Sure would seem easier and cheaper.
