vintage trailer brake controller

Im looking for a vintage electric/hydraulic, single axle, trailer brake controller. Im doing a period correct rebuild of a 67 Ford Fairlane pulling a rebuilt 13 ft 53 Aljo travel trailer. It neednt be NOS, Ill refurbish it if the price is right. Anyone out there have one theyll part with or know where I might pick one up? Thanks.eddielee

This may mean many trips to a junk yard, one that has cars and trucks pre 1980? to find one on a ford car or truck then again you may be able to order one from a parts house. (J.C. Whitney?) This is just a guess. Hope this helps. The Aljo didn't come with brakes from the factory, I'm pretty sure of this. Joe

Rather and go with a "vintage" controller, you can get a very nice state of the art Max Brake that is a hydraulic activated controller. The old Kelsey-Hayes were good units fro their time, but are very outdated now.

I have a old one I am not sure if it is that old though. I am using it now but want to reolace it because it does not work right with the big trailer works fine with my small flat bed though. I could send you a pic if you want.

I think I have one on the shelf you can have.
If it's still out there you can have it for the price of shipping it to you.

Just can't remember if I threw it out the last clean up day or not.
I'll get out there this morning and see if I can find it.
It came off my Dad's truck from the 60's. As far as I know he pulled it to trade trucks and never installed it in the new one.
