    I need to replace the Brake Booster on my 66 Wildcat, does anyone know what Brake boosters will work on a 66 Wildcat. I am only finding ones for 67 and up, thanks!

    Thanks! Quick question, does he sell boosters, or just rebuild them?

    What is going to sting you is that he would give you a credit for a core. If you are overseas, that is not likely cost effective. If he needs to refurbish a core that you must provide, advertise for one here and have it shipped to him.

    I have a booster from a '66 Wildcat I could sell & ship. $50.00 + the ride.

    Dewey retired and handed over the shop to Booster Steve. Steve was Dewey's wingman for over 26years and he is super nice and knows his stuff and he loves cars.
    Call Steve at 503-238-8882.
    Tell him Eric sent you.
    He can rebuild yours or sell you a restored one.
    I worked with them for a year back in 2014. I'll tell Steve tomorrow night
    at dinner that you're interested in
    getting info.
    Whats your name and where are you located?

    Does anyone know if a 67 booster will fit on a 66?

    I just left the Booster Shop...
    Steve showed me the Booster that you would need to fit your car.
    Call him.

    I gave him a call but no one answered. I left a message, and I can call again tomorrow. What time does he open?

    He said he thought he probably had one, but he would need to check, as of yesterday he said that he had not found it yet.

    yep I tried calling him twice roughly a month ago. Either Busy or no one answering. Doesn’t seem a way to run a business..
