The Cutlass uses the same disc brakes as a Chevelle. EVERYBODY sells these kits. I've found Speedway Motors to be the least expensive. You do not need a different power booster, you can use your old one if you have PB. You can also machine your drum spindles to accept the caliper brackets as shown here:

He specializes in 70-72 monte carlos.. he can set you up with a complete USED front brake setup from a monte carlo, which is the same as a 70-72 chevelle (not sure about the 68-69 chevelle) which should fit..

just an option

The factory 10.75" rotors came with 14" wheels. The problem is that not all 14" wheels are created equally. Drum brake cars got wheels with a different backside profile than disc brake cars. For example, the 1960s Olds Super Stock I wheels will not clear disc brakes, but the early 70s version (also 14") will clear the factory discs.
