You can keep the front end the same. There is no real need in changing it. The disc brake kit to use common parts for it will cost less than a donor suspension, or a Mustang II if you went that route. Trim the firewall tabs and relocate the E brake handle, or mod it to be cable operated. SBC V8 will fit right in with some swap mounts. 2nd Gen Camaro rear fits almost perfect.
