ABS and Traction Contol in a Classic


New Member

I have seen a couple of classic mustangs with ABS and/or Traction control.

This was achieved by entire drivetrain and suspension transplant from a modern donor car with ABS and TC. The transplant included the original computer, etc.

Is there any aftermarked bolt on ABS/TC unit that will work without a modern Ford engine/computer?

Or is there a way to get the ABS or the TC unit to work without the modern setup?

Example: Use ABS and/or TC in a classic with a 302 and 4 wheel discs.

Any Ideas or Suggestions appreciated.

I've wondered the same thing, but have never seen a retofit kit for it anywhere. Doesn't seem like ABS would be that hard to do, you'd just need the wheel sensors, lines, ABS valve/actuator block and some kind of a controller. I recon it'd be easy to make the controller also do the Traction Control stuff, it'd just be more programing and some kinda spark retard/interrupt circuit.
