xconcepts Yeah, I had check inline out already. Just was trying to find something from a salvage yard or something cheaper than 600+

DarthBubba Company I went with. Unfortunately I got a little crazy and went with their Stage 4 kit.

xconcepts I can find an A body for the life of me. Every place I've called has said they crushed their older cars. Anyone know a place?

Jeff's Classics I went with Baer Brakes Super Street system in the front, fits behind 15" wheels with no problems. Easy install, great performance, and I think it was around $900 with everything needed to convert from drum to disk. Looks good, too, with the drilled and slotted rotors and nice aluminum calipers. I left rear drums stock, I don't see a need to upgrade the rear given the weight distribution of the car and my plans for driving the car (cruising mostly).
That being said, if my car had been a stock disk brake car I would have left it stock, I think the stock system is fine for typical use on these cars. I converted my '71 Javelin to front disk with a stock set of parts, mostly because I couldn't find a reasonably priced aftermarket kit, but those stock brakes work great.

You'll have to change the rims as soon as you put the brakes on, the 14's won't fit.

jetstang I redid everything on my 70, rotors, calipers, booster and Delco Master cylinder. Car stops like a champ. I bought the spindle conversion kit for my 66 at Daytona for $150. Then you use all the stock components to get away from the drums.
Are you really going to drive the car hard enough to justify $3500 worth of brakes? I'm not, I don't see any of my cars competing on track days..

pontiac if you plan to change rims, then go aftermarket brakes. But if you keep the 14s, then go the later factory GM model single caliper setup. Cheaper to do, and easy to get parts at any auto store.
