It probably will not, unless this is a low mileage original that's been restored to NCRS levels of perfection. Most people love red Corvettes more than blue ones, and most people don't really care about owning a 100% perfect museum piece. So it really depends on how perfect it is, or how perfect you will make it. If that makes any sense.
That's a good question, and you are lucky because 1960 Fords used a two bolt master cylinder (bolts that go to the firewall) so they are similar to the ones you can get for a 1967 Ford Galaxie (or any other 1967 Ford).
I looked at power drum brake master cylinders for 1967 Galaxies and came up with
RAYBESTOS MC36231 as a possible fit for your needs. Check it out here: https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=309052&cc=1403312&pt=1836&jsn=933
Hmm, I really thought (from what I found online, and the Internet is always right 🙂 ) that they switched all cars to a two bolt style in 1960. But I will keep my fingers crossed that one can still work for you!
After spending 3 1/2 weeks with a cast on, finally got back to the brakes. I installed a dual master cylinder from a '67 Mustang w/power, 4 wheel drum brakes. Had to add extra 'O' rings to get a seal for the vacuum at the booster, but I now have functioning power brakes with a dual master cylinder!
I'd recommend getting the original one fixed. Places like Steering Wheel Bob or Gary's Steering Wheel can help, or you can also do it yourself: https://www.eastwood.com/master-steering-wheel-repair-kit-w-instruc.html
