It would appear to me the wheel brake cylinders have probably rusted and hanging the pistons inside. At the very least I would replace the flexible brake lines that go to each wheel and wheel cylinders. There is a possibility you also have a brake master cylinder that is hanging and causing pressure to hold the brake shoes against the brake drums. I would also check the return spring on the brake pedal to make sure it isn?t binding or broken.
