Brake swap

I have a first generation Camaro clip, it has drum brakes and I want to convert to discs. I searched thru the knowledge base but couldnt find what GM discs I can use, tho i'm sure the info is there. What was an early Camaro, "A" body, "F" body? Not familiar with these terms.Thanks in advance.

The 67-69 Camaro/Firebird (F-body), the 64-72 Chevelle and sisters (A-body) and the 68-74 Nova and sisters (X-body) all use the same spindles. If you can't find a disc brake conversion kit for a first gen Camaro, you can't be trying very hard. As noted, Speedway has about the best prices.
