Drum to disc

I have a 69 camaro that has drum all the way around and I want to move to discs in the front at least. But I currently don’t have 500-700 for a good disc brake kit. Are there any cars I can go to the junk yard and take the system off and swap right on to mine? If so what cars work?

Re: Drum to disc

If you're a DIY guy and don't mind a little leg work, you can do the front disc swap pretty easy/cheap.

Modify your spindles, and buy all your other stuff through a local parts store, Jegs, Summit, Rock Auto, or such...
