I have a 1st series Chevy 1955 PU. Completely original. I am doing a frame off restoration. I am looking for brake lines, e-brake cables, shoes, calibers. Are there vendors available?

Your truck won’t have calipers if it is original and you are restoring it. Surprisingly, Rock Auto carries a lot of stuff for older vehicles and at good prices. They even give a quality rating on a lot of parts. You can also get many parts from places like LMC Truck.

While you're planning the brake work, you should seriously consider installing a dual master cylinder. It's certainly not original but it's much safer.

That is one change I would like to make. Definitely better to have dual reservoirs in case one half goes out.
