Oh boy am I confused then............

Would the A Bodies have had front disc brakes as a dealer option then if they weren't a Factory fitted option?
The reason I ask is there is a lot of suppliers that list front calipers and rotors for A Bodies years 1967 - 1968.

All the links above are for A Body cars 1967-68 which is why I asked the question above.
