Looking for a right front original pony caliper. At some point somebody swapped out the original pony calipers on my TB Bullitt and I'm trying to restore her to her former glory, I tracked down a left side so far. Willing to purchase a pair of fronts if somebody has a set they don't want to split up, thanks.

is that just a mach 1 caliper basically with a pony decal on it? it's the same as the cobra but the cobra has the name embossed on it.

I know beggers can't be choosers but I was hoping to find NOS if possible, I figured I'd put it out there, you never know what people have laying around. I saw the new set on eBay, it's been on there a while for 1400.00, don't think so. Willing to pay just not that crazy :)

Rock auto has them $145 - $290 for the pair (with no core). Not painted. No logo. You can paint the new calipers; exact color is available at chain stores.

I had bad piston (sticking) and seals (cracks) on my front calipers. I rebuilt them with parts from Rock Auto. Parts are hard to find for the calipers. Mentioning because when I had my calipers off, I masked the pony emblems and spray painted my red calipers to bring them up to newer look.
You might want to consider testing the used calipers (one at a time): by hanging with wire ties to car; hydraulic line connected [then activate with brake (block inserted in caliper to prevent over extension) then compressing caliper with clamps to make sure they are not sticking.
Once used calipers are installed ( sticking caliper could ruin your new brake shoes and rotors).
Of course everybody's comfort zone is different. Just a thought.
I just noticed your ebay seller said they have already tested calipers.
If your seals are not cracked, your need to test parts just diminished.

Ebay has new front calipers posted from time to time. If you can wait long enough for one I would. They have a new left one, but that is it.

Appreciate it thanks, I'll keep my eyes on finding a new right side still. I did grab a set of used ones for the time being.

parts_plus_more on ebay has a left one but no right one. He normally carries new ones so you might want to reach out and send an email to him.
