Quite possibly the master cylinder. There are two ports in there,
one lets the fluid return to the master cylinder, from the wheel
cylinders, after a brake application is over.
Talk about exciting, I had that happen to me on the front wheel
brake of a motorcycle. It would set the brake tight enough, to lock
up the tire while slowing down. A quick opening on the bleeder,
would produce a tiny spurt of fluid, enough to relieve the pressure
in the caliper, and no more drag.
Cleaning the master cylinder ports out, fixed the problem.
Just a possible idea.

weekend at the Illinois Meet we did our small cruise. Nice
and slow, a little stop and go. When we returned to the
park, I proceeded to load my Crosley on its trailer. I
hooked up my winch and the car did not want to move.
Checked the shifter, it wasn’t in gear. Checked the
e-brake, it wasn’t set. I really had to work the winch hard
to get it loaded
hours later when I’m home, it rolls off the trailer easy as
can be. I suspect I have a brake hanging up, but I suspect
the hydraulic components more than the springs. I’m
brake lines for collapse.
was stuck, but released over time. Here’s your chance,
please share your experience.
