My guess: the steel line, running from the splitter block to the wheel 
cylinder, has been crushed shut.  Has the car ever been put on a 
flatbed hauler?

Follow it back from the wheel cyl, around the front of the axle and 
across the top.  If you feel a pinched-off/flat spot, you need to 
replace that hard line.  It's cheap, and only takes a few minutes to 
bend to shape.
