I want to replace these calipers and brakes. They look like standard GM parts but what year and make would they be from? I know the guys at the parts stores can't find them unless I give them the car they go to. Thanks for the help.

im not for sure,
but i had brake brackets like that and i bought calpiers for a 72 nova and worked fine.
do you have another pic of the outer brake pad.
those may have been part of a brake kit??

years back when i worked the counter at a Part Store it wasn't all that uncommon i'd have to identify a caliper, wheel cylinder or master cylinder. the casting numbers are identifiable but of course the catalog is needed :(
if you're in a part store where one look at that caliper doesn't identify it as a GM caliper, you're in the wrong store :yes: most good, full-service auto part stores should be able to identify that caliper by the casting number.
stop in at a CarQuest or a NAPA store and just tell 'em ya have a ChevyII that was converted to discs (OEM style) and the calipers need identifying by the casting numbers and ANY hotshot counterman will jump on the challenge to ID (it's actually an easy job ;) )
good luck ;)
the pad is either a D52 std full size caliper or a D154 which is a "Metric" caliper (say off a '78 Malibu ;)

It looks like the standard GM caliper for 68-72 Chevelle,Nova,Camaro etc.Both A and X bodies from all GM product lines

Look like the D52 style from over 500 different GM products covering several years. Ask for a 70 Camaro pad, and see if it fits; if not try like an 81 Malibu which would be the newer "metric" style.

Yes,they're the 69-77 GM midsize, Napa numbers SDC 2422014 and SDC 2422015. I use them for 62-67 Nova disc comversions.
Enter the part numbers at http://www.napaonline.com & you can see pics of them.

Easy and cheap to rebuild them especially as long as the pistons are good. Can also buy them "loaded" meaning they come with the pads and use these as cores if wanted.

thanks for the help !!! You guys nailed it !!!
I see Napa's are a bit more expensive then Autozone or Advance auto ? I usually buy Napa but wondering if it is a better part ?

I think most of the rebuilds are done by Cardone & put in each stores boxes (they look the same & sometimes have the same ink stamps).
We buy most of our parts from Napa but I think O'reily's had the best price last time I bought calipers (I tell them they're for a 70 Nova).

Those are the same as mine, 69 Camaro.
