Upgrading my stock brake system

Brakes

Hi Ed,Sorry for the vagueness in my last question. I just recently bought the car and it has been stored for 20 years. After I was able to get it up and running, I drove it and it felt like the brakes need some work. I feel like I have to press hard on the brake pedal in order to stop(at 30 - 40mph). I'm looking to restore the car and using it as my weekend driver. The stock tires are still on it. Do you think I should change the master cylinder? Do you think I should just put new brakes, rotors, lines and rebuild the calipers? What do you recommend for tires?Thanks, Alex
