JL8 4-Piston with 2 Piece Rotor / Not Corvette

This is on eBay, Item # 371924729693

I've seen this front brake setup only once before in 1982 in Mobile Alabama while stationed there. Its not like the norm, using Corvette rotors for the JL8 setup. Car had a 10" tree notch center-line-hood. The Junkyard owner placed the car remnants in his dogs pen area on pallets because people were jumping the fence at night and stripping it. It was a 302 Z/28, Dual 4-bbl Holley, Electronic Ignition, 4-wheel Disc Brake.
I have owned my car since 1977, a 1969 Z/28 (its an April build). My car has the same 2-Piece rotors but the single piston calipers.
I Was wondering if Jerry MacNeish or David Pozzi have any information on the calipers and bracket used.

I pasted the link in for you. We've had some previous new members post a bunch of male gay porn photos, so we have to limit new members.
The link shows stock 1967 10" x 1" disc brakes. 69 used a single piston caliper with the same two piece rotor. The two piece rotor can have runout issues because the two parts bolt together. GM went to a one piece rotor/hub from 1970 up. In 68 and 69, there was also the JL8 option which used 11" X 1.25" Corvette rotors and calipers.
