Anyone have a recomendation for a nice reasonably priced four wheel disk setup. Car currently has all drums with the single bowl master.

Thanks, Rob

Nice project, there is a lot of info here on the group on disk conversions if you use the search feature.
I just did the front disc conversion on mine since most of the stopping power is in the front and the rear drums are more than adequate.

Thanks, Rob
Take a look at Wilwood. My 69 was an original front disc car, but I went with a Wilwood system on all 4 wheels. The car has been up and running since 2011, went on the full Power Tour in 2013, and the brake system has been trouble free.

Thanks Bear,
Thats one of the sets I have been looking at, it's good to hear some real world experiences with them.

I too have a 1966 GTO & in need of a full blown resto. I've been a member here on the forum for quite some time for the same reasons as yourself. I'll be following your thread very closely trying to learn what I can. I'm at, well have been at the same point for a long time. I have the original 389 & trans out of the car & that's where I had to stop for several reasons, some personal but mostly the money issue. This morning I just decided #*#*it, it's going to start to get done & finding your thread was great. I'm still stuck between a resto-mod & just a basic resto. My history with the car is on here somewhere, but in a nutshell, I can never sell the car. It must stay in the family. Still don't know where I'm going to get the cash I'll need but I'm getting my act together as of now. Good luck with your build & I'll be hanging around picking up what I can.

Made up a body cradle this weekend. It does the trick in the garage, hopefully it will also allow me to transport it for blasting and bodywork.
