First thing that I wanted to tackle was the brake system. I would like to convert the old front drums to power disc brakes. Anyone that you would recommend that would have a complete front brake setup that bolts in and if so what is the smallest size rim that could fit on it? I was also looking for some after market headers for my 327 like some shortys or something.
Holy Jesus!!! that's a lot of money for that kit. I don't know if any other company offers the caliper brackets, but besides the brackets, there's ~$400 worth of parts in that kit, if everything bought at NAPA.
They sell what looks like an identical kit (my brother put one on his '60 impala) for somewhere in the $500 range, which uses mostly Chevelle parts. Any 15" wheel will fit, and some 14" will, but not all.
I did some checking and it seems that from 59-64 they all have the same disc conversion kit. The only thing is that I will have to order the brackets from one of the books right? I have seen the kits for $765.00 which is the cheapest I have seen that will fit a min. of a 14" rim.
Now that I have the brakes taken care of I need to change over the old canister type oil filter to a regular oil filter. Can I get that at any auto part store? If so do you know of a part number for that? Also need to change over the old point sytem, can I just get the bypass kit at autozone or something?
