Question 68 Drum spindle, 15"wheel,which disc...?

This 68 Camaro has to stop better...I want to retain the stock drum spindle and put on a front disc setup....I have seen a few websites and they all refer to c4 or c5 setups that would require 17"or larger wheels. I have heard of using 70s corvette rotors but Im not sure about the caliper brackets? I need something simple..This is a street/strip car..but I dont want some high dollar brake label..the factory stuff would be great...any ideas..Thanks...

If you want to keep a 15" wheel why don't you go with a factory disc set-up. Is there a reason why you want to keep the drum spindle? There are numerous factory equivelent smaller disc set-ups designed to fit behind the 15 inch wheels.
