Newbie with questions.

Hello All!!
Thanks for allowing me to join the group. Im a proud new owner of a 1966 Lemans. Restoration in Progress.
I may have some questions....
first one is;
What master cylinder set up can i use for a disk/disk set up. When i purchased the vehicle it had or still has all drum set up. I went to the Salvage yard and pulled some calipers from a 2002 camaro and purchased a bracket to make it work.
Not trying to brake the bank, this is a resto on a budget.
My plans are updating the springs, shocks, eventually upper and lower control arms , and sway bar front and back.
The car is pretty solid. Was a Cali car, then Texas and now back in SoCal were i purchased it. Look to checking out some of the forums.
All the best...

No on the master cylinder. 1966 should be a single reservoir and single brake line coming out. You need a dual reservoir and two lines, one for the front discs and one for the rear drums.
