    Hi Ben, and welcome aboard. You'll find getting parts for these old Buicks can be a challenge. I found my local parts store was able to get most of the parts I needed when I did my brakes a while ago on my '60 LeSabre ragtop, though I had to rebuild the wheel cylinders myself. Kanter probably has everything you need, too - http://kanter.com/ . And if you're interested in converting to front discs, I just did it - check these threads:

    And here's a thread on converting your power drums to a later model booster with a dual-reservoir master:

    Good luck.
