    Hey guys, anyone care to comment if there is any use for original two piece disc brake rotors, (rotors and hub) used on the 69-73 "C" body line of cars?
    Anybody that anal, repairing, restoring, cars wanting to use period correct parts?
    I'v got six of them, under the storage shelving, in the garage, and want to figure out if i should just hold onto them, or throw them out.
    You are well aware these rotors weigh a ton, and if i tried to sell them, the shipping costs on each one of them, would be a killer, in this modern day and age.

    Just throwing this question out there, and see what comes of it.
    Thank's a lot.

    Looking at the Rock Auto web site, the new, one piece rotors are going for $50.00 - $75.00 each.
    What would you guys be willing to pay for original ones, knowing to get them from point A to point B ain't gonna be cheap.

    Since all the rebuilt calipers that i had advertised in the for sale section sold quick, within two days, i figure i should now do something about the rotors.

    FYI, in regards to these rotors.
    I'll go down to the local FEDEX terminal, here in my city, and get one of them weighed, to see how much one of these anchors weighs in at.
    Will also measure them, as i have micrometers, to see how thick they are.
    Will also take pictures for you guys, that are giving me answers to my question(s) about these rotors.
    Appreciate it, thank's a lot.
    I'll get back with everyone, here.

    Update to the update.
    Well, i went rooting around in the garage after lunch, and come to find out what i have in the way of rotors are nothing but boat anchors.
    4 of the big rotors, are for Lincoln Continental's, and are at minimums already, or undersize.
    They look like Chrysler ones at first glance, as they are big and hugh also.
    So those are boat anchors.
    Why i got those, i haven't any clue, anymore.

    And then the other two, are for the big C body cars, and one is already at minimum thickness, and the mate to it has a big groove on the back side, so that one went metal to metal.

    So i've got scrap metal, and nothing worth while.
    Didn't think i had a gold mine by any means, but thought i had something usable, for somebody, out there in the C body world.

    Anyway, thank's for reading, and can't help out anybody.

    As long as they have adequate material to surface properly...... keep 'em.

    Hell, I'd be interested in a set, as long as there's enough meat for me to machine.

    I ran into an issue with my 69 Sport Fury because someone had installed one of the one piece rotors on the drivers side, the factory deep dish deluxe wheel cover would not go on that wheel because the diameter of the hub is larger on the one piece unit.

    Nope, sorry.
