From what I can tell they used two different boosters in 1962. I am sure they started with a Bendix dual diaphragm and then switched away from that. I think they then used a Midland-Ross unit with a cast front half. Does anyone have a picture of a stock later 62 car ? Does anyone have a measurement from the mounting surface to the center of the eyelet for the brake pedal? Also the casting number for a 62 master cyl. I am looking for a booster/MC assembly for my car.
Thanks

I just posted these pics the other day here on another thread, maybe you can see what you need, I can get a better one if needed. I have no way of knowing how original the booster is on my cars.

Here's a pic of an original '62 booster with a tandem MC mounted on it.

I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

Your picture is of an incorrect booster & MC.It was in the 1962 polara 500 dodge's and the 1963 also.

The correct one is the Midland 10 screw booster.The MC was a single port cast iron unit seen on all 62&63 's

Yes, the dual circuit MC is all mine, but the car in my pic is a Polara 500, so that then is the correct/original style booster?
Never would have thought the 500 would have its own dedicated booster.
