I'm pretty sure the '68 - '70 Impalas had a disc brake option and would be a bolt-on. Spindles, calipers, rotors, master cylinder, booster and any related valving.

Good luck finding those. They were extremely rare when new and replacement rotors are almost nonexistent.

Dollar for dollar the best swap system around. Uses all stock parts from your parts store.
