65 GTO Disc brake kit

I have a customer that wants me to put disc brakes on the front of his 65 GTO. Being a ford guy I don't know much about GM musclecars. I think there are probably some donor GM parts that can make this happen, but I am in need of some advice. I think just for time and simplicity I would prefer a complete kit from someone. Thanks in advance guys.

Jared

the a-bodies from 64-72?-i think it is, (chevelle, elcamino, skylark, 442, gto)
disc spindles/brakes fit, there are also quite a few places that can hook you up with a kit for a disc conversion.

quote from a website "This brake conversion bolts to the stock drum brake spindle with no machine work or spindle modifications, and maintains stock wheel position. The kit uses stock big piston GM calipers and 11-inch dia. rotors on billet aluminum hubs. Availible in both 4-3/4" GM and 4-1/2" Ford bolt circles. Kit includes rotors, clipers with pads, bearings, seals, caliper mounting brakets, aluminum hubs and dust covers. Note: 62-63 Chevy II requires 64-67 spindles.

68-74 Nova, 67-69 Camaro, 64-72 Chevelle, GTO -
EC-723ACK.....68-74 NOVA, 67-69 CAMARO, 64-72 CHEVELLE. GTO....Complete Kit $ 525.00" that was from here http://www.ecihotrodbrakes.com/early...nversions.html
It was the 1st site I clicked on during a google search. They seem to have good low prices 525 bux (wonder whats missing, hmmmm..).... i usually see them for around 700+
There are more than just that site to get conversion kits from.
Junkyards work too. But I'd go with a new kit since it is a customers car, right?
