    Default Mystery Brake shoes - Possibly T/A?

    I have had these brake shoes in my parts collection for about 25 years. They came to me from a service dealership that had had them for probably another 20, so they are definitely pre-70's vintage. The are not DS rear shoes because they don't have the big hole in the bottom for the adjuster. Can anyone identify them? Thanks.

    P.S. They are probably asbestos, so contraband in OZ....

    No idea. Can you try a Google image search for just one of them?

    They look like 10 inch Lockheeds, but I am put off by the absence of a post for the long spring, and the lack of a recess for the pivot.

    Yeah, I guess they are not T/A shoes. T/A shoes also have a large hole at the bottom, which is absent in these...

    They are full floating shoes for a start and TAs have a fixed pivot leading and trailing shoe set up!

    OK, well if nobody recognizes them, they must be for some ancient Jaguar. Thanks for the replies.
