I have an NOS set of brake drums made by Gould Century that I may sell. Does anyone have an idea of what they are worth. I've owned them for probably 20 years and don't have a clue anymore what I paid for them.

the non-finned 63-65(some 65's were ordered with drum brakes) drums are readily available in the aftermarket so just check what they get for current replacements(which are likely composed of oriental metal). hence your old NORS set ought to be worth 1 1/2 to twice what the chineese critters are selling for. had your set been the finned drums, they'd bring a grand at carlisle. mike
