Brake light on so

Where best to buy front pads I thought it was just the cars not been driven much why a slight rubbing noise when braking but now think that must need pads and what type 1967 2000SC

As you say if the car isn't used regularly then the discs may get a little rusty & cause the rubbing noise. Have a look at the pads, it's easy to tell if they're low & need replacing.
Any of the specialists sell brake pads, have a look at their websites.

Check your brake fluid level. If it's still high take the float switch in the cap apart. Its common for the cork to sink with age. You can easily test if its a faulty switch by removing one of the wires going to the cap on the reservoir. If the light goes out with the handbrake down that's probably at fault.

If it is the float, buy a bottle of wine with a synthetic cork, drink the wine (or give to others) and take the cork, drill a small hole down the centre of it, then using a Stanley knife cut a slit from the outside to the hole. You can now pull off the old float and push the new cork in place, that should get you fixed.

That's the best idea involving alcohol and mixing a car I've heard
