Help to ID backing plate

Can anyone tell me if this is a Ford? I am restoring a vintage race car and am trying to redo the brakes. Thanks for any information you could give me. Phil

Looks it... I am fairly sure that it should have a "FORD" or "FOMOCO" script on it somewhere if it is....

Re: Help to ID backing plate

Thanks to the both of you for the replies. This car ran in the mid 60's till 1970. It's one of the open wheeled type. You are correct in that both front brakes were drum. The right front is the 30's to 40's Ford type that does not have a star wheel at the bottom of the shoes. From what I can find out so far, this (left front)backing plate and brake parts is a, maybe, 60's pick up truck. It fits the old wide five hub for 15" wheels. As soon as I can nail down a date I can buy a wheel cylinder and hose and I'll have another mystery solved.

If you are after a wheel cylinder, can't you just go by "looks". I have bought replacement wheel cylinders off "unknown" models before by looking at a shadow sheet in a parts book. Basically it shows the mounting face of the wheel cylinder in actual size, plus the diameter of the mounting bolts. Measure the bore size, and away you go.....

I went to NAPA and they pulled up a bunch of them on the computer screen. Looking in 1940's we found a match. Thanks........Phil
