SOURCE: 89 f150 4x4 right rear locked up
On older vehicles with drums brakes in the rear, the brake shoes on the inside are used for the emergency brake. However, the emergency brake only uses one pad per wheel instead of both, which is why the emergency brake does not work as well at keeping the vehicle from rolling backwards. You should check to see if the emergency brake is locked up. If that doesn't work, take the driveshaft off and try tow it forwards. If it rolls, then your transmission is not functioning properly.

You could try bleeding them yes.. There should be a bleeder located on each caliper. Should have a little nut sticking up off the caliper. Remove that bleeder will be under it. If that does not work it may be the master cylinder itself. Just had same problem on ford van that turned out to be master cylinder. Hope that helps..

Well if you have bled it correctly starting at the farthest out(PS Side Rear) and working to the closest(DR Side Front) and you make sure to close the bleeder valve before letting up and repumping the peddel,then I would say that the seals in your new master cylinder may be bad.When you bled the second or third time if there was no air then I would say you have a bad master cylinder.If there was air then you have another problem.Well hope this helps and good luck.

SOURCE: Vehicle is a resto-mod 1970
I doubt the problem is the calipers as I would not expect them both to be faulty.
I do not think it is the proportioning valve.
From the symptoms you have described it sounds very much like the master cylinder is faulty. If the car is a resto mod with upgraded brakes I assume the original master cylinder has been replaced with some late model unit, either new or used.
I could not comment further without inspecting and testing the car. Some resto mods are carried out by amateur car enthusiast (as you know) rather than professionals and amateurs frequently undertake brake modifications that should be left to the experts.
I would be taking the car to a competent brake specialist to check it out. especially as the braking system has been modified with an aftermarket kit. This is not a DIY task and I would advise you not to try fiddling with the braking system in an attempt to fix this problem yourself.
