Are the stock brakes good in a 1947 Cadillac?  Or if not, is there a retro fit brake booster that can be installed in a 1947 Cadillac fleetwood 60 special?

I guess the question is "are the brakes good enough for the way the cars drive around you today"
that answer is no.
Just try and maintain a safe distance for your vehicles stopping ability and there's (minimally)  a rice rocket instantly in that space.
Good news is you can add a power booster and dual system both hidden under the floor board.

Yes.  That's what I'm looking for.  Where would I find more information about the power booster and dual system?

For a dual master cylinder system, try Art Gardner who is in the CLC directory in Georgia.
