Well I can almost guarantee that you won't find stuff that will bolt on in a junkyard, but there is a company that sells the minimum of custom parts you might need to do the conversion, and you can build the rest from junkyard parts or auto store parts.
check em out..I'm not sure they have your application, but they are worth a shot..

my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example

Try these links,
The second to last link I posted has many different links that may help. If you can locate the Tex Smith how to book it may help.

mopar brakes

I have seen the tex smith article on adapting disks to mopar spindles on line-
google it and you can find it. As I recall it used rear rotors from a Toranado adapted to stock hubs. Good luck Jim
