Post 65 Mustang, 6 cyl. Disc brake conversion?

I have a 65 with a inline 6, I can buy a kit to convert the drums to dics but they are too much cash. Is there any later model car that will swap with the 4 lug hub or do I have to upgrade the hubs to 5 lugs.??? <img src="graemlins/crash.gif" border="0" alt="[crash]" /> <img src="graemlins/crash.gif" border="0" alt="[crash]" />

If you want to retain the four bolt wheels, and they are going to have to be at least 14" if you have 13" on it now, is to go the GRANADA swap route and have the front rotors redrilled for four lug.

You will also have to use the steel wheels off the GRANADA or disc brake MAVERICK for the wheel offset to clear the brake caliper

You might consider going to an 8" rear also (5-lug) and making it all five lug. The six cylinder front spindles are notoriously weak.
