Cadillac Restoration Question

I have a general question about restoring old cars, specifically my 1956 Cadillac Coupe De Ville. I would like to add some non-original options to my car (disc breaks, dual master cylinder, etc.) to make it a little safer to drive. My question is how much does changing things like that affect the value of a car. Would the car be worth significantly more if I kept the drum brakes and just rebuilt them? I'm also thinking about spark plug wires, hoses, things like that, nothing that would change the style of the car just things that make life a little easier.
