As long as you've got the room on the firewall, it's not all that hard. Be sure to use the proper master cylinder and proportioning valve for your set up. The Corvette is four wheel disks so it's not suited for your needs. I'd go with a mid 70's full size GM with disk/drum. The rod from your pedal to the booster is the hardest part. If it's too long the brakes will drag and if it's too short you won't have enough pedal travel. I used a 74 T-Bird m/c booster and the under the dash pedal/rod and bracket assembly on my 53 Ford and it was fairly easy.
