1930 Super Six disc brake kit

Did a search really couldn't find what I was looking for. Does anyone know of a kit or how to convert the drum brakes on my 1930 Essex super six 2 door sedan to disc brakes? I'm thinking this is a needle in the haystack situation but thought I'd ask anyway. Thanks in advance!

    I really don't know for sure but some here have done this by using the stepdown kit with a spacer for some prewar HET vehicles.

    The only person I know that has done this is Richard Swatsley. His car is an Essex (31?). He might be able to give you some insight. He's in the roster.

    Perhaps a conversion to hydraulics may be easier.

    You should contact Matt Faust, I believe he converted a 33 Terraplane to hydraulic power disc brakes. He used to sell disc brake conversions kits for Hudson’s. Matt is in the Roster in TN.
