'70 Impala master cylinder question

My '70 Impala has original power brakes and the optional original front disc brakes, and the master cylinder is apparently dead.
Before I go and buy a new master cylinder, I am wondering if the cars with power and front disc brakes use the same master cylinder as the cars with power and front drum brakes?
Thanks!

Looking at an online catalog it appears they are different.

That was my issue, really, looking at online vendors, it is not very clear whether they are the same or not...
