1965 Impala SS Front Disc Brake Conversion

Hello,

I'm looking to have a front disc brake conversion kit installed on my 1965 Impala SS. I was looking into the Classic Performance Products (CPP) kit, but when I called and mentioned I had the factory drum brake wheels, I was told I would need to get different wheels. I called around to other manufacturers and was told the same. One told me that it's because the brake and caliper wouldn't clear the rim.
I want to retain the SS hubcaps that are on the current 14" wheel. I did some research and found that later models had disc brakes offered. Does anyone know of a 14" wheel that I can use to install disc brakes with and keep my SS hubcaps?

Thanks!
