56 Chevy Bel-air 150 Disc Brake Conversion/Swap

Hello!!!Can someone please help me find information on "How to do a Disc Brake Conversion/Swap" for a 1956 Chevy Bel-air/150. What donor cars can I look for? I know it's do-able, just haven't had luck finding what cars I can do the swap from?
Appreciate any help
Thank you.


I don't want to buy a kit, unless there is no other alternative.

If no one has ever told you there are complete disk brake conversions for '55/6/7 Chevies.

Classic Chevy sells these kits as does P-S-T.com, East Coast Classics, and many other Tri-Five vendors.
You can try Gene at Star City Classic Parts

Or Steve Case at Case's

Or any number of people like Ralph Roberts for one of these kits.

I know in the 1970s into the 1980s guys used disk brakes from full size Chevy's to put them on a '55/6/7 Chevy. One of the most popular was a brake set up from a Monte Carlo. But you have to have the rotors cut down so they fit on a Tri-Five.

There's also Chevy Talk.com, the '55/6/7 Chevy boards for help doing one of these installs.

If you talk with Gene or Steve Case tell them "RJ" sent ya.
And almost everyone on the Chevy Talk.com '55/6/7 Chevy boards know of me.

Good luck.
