Has anyone tried to fit Wilwood brake calipers to their C3. I understand that there is a set of bolt on calipers which are available but not sure if they would be worth fitting. My standard Delco Marine ones, with lip seals, tend to leak slightly if the car is not used for a while. Wilwood uses O rings which could be better. Any views would be appreciated. Thanks

They fit, they work, and they are 20 lbs lighter. You DO have to shim them to center on the rotor, and you have to remove and tilt the rears to bleed them. Wilwood installed the bleeders in an other than stock position. (dumb).
