disc brakes 1968 galaxie conversion
 
I have a 68 ford galaxie 302 small block with power drum brakes. I need info on what type or year of car to get parts to convert to dis brakes. All info would be appreciated.

Well...

Any FORD/MERC of that era (1968/1970) would be the easiest to take the parts off of. A later FORD or 73/ TORINO will also work, but there may be a problem with ball joint/tie rod end wedge ends. But, they (spindles) can be machined to accept the earlier suspension parts or you may just be able to switch different year parts around to get the end result.

You have several possibilities. Just don't forget the master cylinder and proportioning valve upgrades also.
