Purchased brand new from the Bus Depot in 2007 (at a cost of $140.00 each!), still in original boxes.  Shipped to us for our 1977 VW Bus/Combi mistakenly.  Were installed on our 1977, then when the brakes would not bleed correctly (get good pedal feel), we discovered they were not the correct ones.  Bus Depot would not take them back as we had installed the calipers and put brake fluid in them.  Tech help there said if we bled them a certain way, then we should be able to get correct pedal pressure and thus, use them.  We could never achieve this so we pulled them back off and re-installed the original calipers, which were not defective but had over 300,000 miles on them (kitted once).  Drove Bus another 9 years like this, with intention of trying to get these calipers to work in the future when original calipers failed.  Never happened—we sold our beautiful Bus last year with 340,000 miles on it with original calipers.

 

These brand new ATE Calipers have never been on the road.  Were repackaged back in their original boxes, packed with newspaper and stored in a crate in the garage since 2007.  Great original condition, with only minor surface rust/corrosion on iron caliper bodies—internals as original.
