From what you are describing here, this is either a leak in the system or a possible faulty master cylinder. First, make absolutely sure there are no leaks. Even though there are no apparent leaks, this could be a small crack in a line and it's just seaping out rather than a major leak. Check the under side of the vehicle for any signs of wetness. Follow the lines up from the rear and along the frame. If this vehicle has drum brakes in the rear, check the insides of the rear tires for "streaks". If this is present, the problem will be the wheel cylinders. If you are certain there are no leaks, the problem sounds like it will be the master cylinder.
