It wii make the car unsafe to drive as the better rear Bendix brakes will lock-up before the front Huck style brakes are effective.

I agree with Gene. The self-energizing rear brakes will lock up in a hard stop before the fronts. That will be a very unstable situation.

I’m not comfortable offering any guidance for,this scenario. Brakes are a system so all the components need to be matched for balanced and adequate performance.
