As work continues on the Javelin, the wheels were removed for access to the brakes. On the passenger side we found drum brakes. As 10 inch- diameter drum brakes where standard for this year there were no surprises on the passenger side. However, once we got the driver's side wheel removed we found disc brakes
As previously mentioned, drum brakes were standard on the Javelin until 1974. In that year front disc brakes went from being an option to being the standard. Regardless, you wouldn't expect to find both drum and disc brakes on a car, but rather one or the other. Just one of the curious things to be found when going through and restoring an older car.
