Looks like it is the brake booster. I have it out and ready for repair/replacement. I received a referral to use White Post Restorations out of White Post, VA. Has anyone used this company for replacing their servo booster?

Since then I have driven it very little (it’s HOT in FL in July, August and September). I took the car to a local car show a week or two ago and everything was fine. I got in the car last night and the brake petal went down and inch or so before engaging with a strong petal. I looked at the fluid level and both the brake side and clutch side were virtually empty. I noticed that the reservoir cap was not seated correctly, which is odd and the cap on the radiator was also loose, odder yet. There is no sign of spillage in the engine bay nor on the floor.
