What master / booster is that? What kind of car is it from?

Brakes are from 1970 mustang. I don't know the manufacturer of the brake booster, you can check with https://www.classicdiscbrakes.com/55...ke-Conversions

Disc brake installation.
 
Gentlemen hello, I just joined this site today as I bought a 1955 tbird in need of a lot oh help. I know this is an old post but I am getting ready to do this exact conversion. I have looked at many many booster and master cylinder combinations and this is the only one I have found that seems to take care of exhaust and hood cable problem. It comes from Jamco parts. The model number is PBB5557T. It sells for $569.95. You all may already have seen the answer but if not maybe this info will be helpful to somebody. This is why I joined. I am so happy to see an actual picture of this conversion. I hope I have not stepped on anyone’s toes. This is my first ever response to a post.
