69 disc brakes on a 67??

I have a 67 with original disc brakes, however I do not have the calipers. I was told by a local shop that I can use the 69 rotors, calipers and wheel bearings and it will fit just fine. Is this correct? I would rather not go out and buy a whole kit. Any input would be useful....thank you.

that is true, just not all original. If you don't care then go for it, it works fine. You can still get the 67 calipers as well.

I did the whole swap from a 69 to a 67, brackets, calipers, rotors, master cyl, booster, proportioning valve. It was a direct bolt on.

Re: 69 disc brakes on a 67??

67's and 68's used 4 piston calipers, while 69 used single piston calipers. If you want to go back original, seek out 4 piston calipers. If you don't, then you can use the 69 stuff. Single piston calipers and rotors are available from all the local auto parts stores.

You'll have to get the 69 caliper brackets.

Check all tire/bumpstop clearences at hose/caliper at full steering lock left/right at full suspension compression and droop. Don't find out the hard way that a hose rips off or wears through.

67 bumpstop on frame can cause issues.
67 disc line J bend and bracket location may cause issues.

Using Chevelle calipers might help solve both issues on the 67s.
The hose inlet is on the bottom.
I have them on my 68, and they're what come with most disc kits.

If I didn't learn it from my my mentors, I learned it as a result.
