57 olds 98 disc brake conversion? Donor?

My buddy has a 57 Olds 98 and he's wondering if there is an auto wrecker conversion for disc brakes rather than buying a kit. Anyone know of a possible donor?

I doubt you'll find a donor car, Olds brakes are pretty unique. Try calling Mike at 1 510 501 6299. He builds a conversion kit to use 70's belair parts. I used his kit, worked pretty well. I had to do a little work beyond his instructions, but nothing too serious.
