Drum to Disc

I have a 1954 Ford Crestline. Everything is original. I would like to put disc brakes on the front. Are there any rotors that will work? How much trouble am I asking for?

Is the front end ball joints ?? on later 50's they use ford granada- monarch or v 8 maverick parts the mustang- falcon sites have the drawings to use newer mustang calipers. they are better than granada style which rust and stick and wear out one side of the rotor..
