Drums, disc, booster?

Hi, have a 68 impala with drum brakes and I would like to keep the car as stock as possible but I want more stopping power. Will I be able to install a brake booster and keep the drums or will I have to upgrade to disc brakes?

Of course, power drums were very popular on these cars. You should be able to get a booster just about anywhere. You don't need to go to front discs.

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.
