David Pozzi has a complete list of brake donor cars on his web page. If it is not on his list I would be willing to bet they won't fit.

DISC BRAKES THAT WILL FIT FIRST GEN CAMAROS
You can use the spindle, caliper, bracket, or rotor from:
Apollo 73-74
Buick Special 69-72
Camaro 69
Chevelle 69-72
Firebird 69
Grand Prix 69
Grand Prix 70-72
Monte Carlo 70-72
Nova 69-74
Olds F85 69-72
Omega 73-74
Sprint gmc /El Camino 71-72
Tempest 69-72
Ventura II 71-74
They must be disc brake equipped of course. I believe discs became standard in 1970.
Some of the cars listed have the caliper forward of the spindle. You must swap side for side placing the Caliper to the rear of the spindle on the Camaro.And use your Camaro steering arms.
I'm not shure about brake boosters working from every car listed. TheFirebird , Nova, El Camino, and Monte Carlo do for shure.
This is a very complete list.
I've also deleted four piston type from this list.
I have more info on my web page below.

The spindles like the 76 Nova that are cast and don't have the bolt on steering arms won't fit the first gen Camaros.

I have info on my page that shows what you can do to your existing drum brake spindles to make em work on a disc system.
