Default Power Brakes Is this OEM

This 63 Lemans is being parted out. It has a weird power brake set up. Does anyone know if this is original or not? It looks OEM

The Photobucket pictures are blurred out so it's hard to tell, but it looks like some sort of hydrovac booster system. It could be aftermarket, or it could be adapted from some other make and model car.

well that explains the big dent in the inner fender the factory did.

What motor was in this car? IT could have had a turbo set up and this is some sort of setup to deal with the lack of vacuum. I know Gm was experimenting with turbos around this time.

Oldsmobile had some 215ci V8 turbo setups back then, but there weren't any in Pontiacs until they came out with the turbo 301s in Trans Ams .
