Default '74 brake help

Hey all, I bought my '74 back in the mid 80's, did the usual stupid kid stuff in it and with it, and some years back took it out to my dad's property because, well...life just got in the way. Two weekends ago I brought her home. She's not terrible to look at, but rusty underneath, and any kind of restoration is a fair ways off. One thing about it being home though, I've got to be able to move it safely around. It still runs and moves, but the brakes are out. I bought new calipers and a master, got new pads and shoes too, but one thing I foolishly did was I removed the brake booster and mounted the master straight to the firewall. I'm about to buy a new booster, but I'm not sure which one I need to get. Some show them with a bracket that sits the booster away from the firewall, some show them without a bracket so they sit flat and flush. Which do I need?
Thanks

Therein lies the problem. It's been gone for years.

And thanks for the welcome. I've been a Starion/Conquest owner/fan for many years. I've got boatloads of parts, and lots of goodies inside my head about them, but in all the time away from the Nova I've never given up on her. She's got a long way to go, but I've got time.

There are lots of after market boosters that will be a direct bolt in.
