Fintail brake caliper interchange ?

Hi, 65 220se, front calipers are seized, anyone know what later calipers will interchange? i have access to tons of 123 parts cars and it would be great if those calipers will just bolt in.

anyone have tune up specs for this car?
thanks!

Any number of MBs had calipers that would interchange with yours, but those models end in the early 70's. We carry remans in stock, and they're very inexpensive, if you can't find anything laying around.

Fintail front caliper exchange - expanded

Hi., thanks, may take you up on those

apparently ATE and Bendix and Girling are all standard. I have Girlings (3 piston), but these are the rarest . If i find ATE or Bendix in a parts car, are the rotors all the same or will i have to change rotors to bendix or ate type?

thanks again for the advice

Rotors are the same regardless, and the caliper brands can be swapped as pairs.
