    55 DeSoto

    Isn't the emergency brake on the '41 thru '48 Mopars adjacent to the transmission ? That's not true of the '55 model year...those vehicles (the '55s) used the rear brake drums for emergency stops. The earlier models had a "dedicated" emergency brake that (more-or-less) stopped the driveshaft itself. Not sure when the "big changeover happened (to using the rear drums) but I think it happened with the "second-series" 1949 modelss.
