fairlane disk brake conversion

is it possible to use ford ltd disk brakes for a front disk brake conversion on a 1965 ford fairlane? and is it possible to use the brake booster?

or would i have to invest in aftermarket parts? just looking for a cheap easy way to upgrade an old car

The easiest/cheapest way to convert your car is with the GRANADA/MAVERICK swap. GOOGLE GRANADA DISC BRAKES and you will find all the info you need.

Put a mustang 2 under it. We put one under my daughters 66 mustang and it worked out great.Now we don't have those big shock towers and we have rack and pinion steering.It also gave us plenty of room for the tuned port 350 and 700R4.

I don't know if anyone makes a bolt in for that car. We cut ours out of a pinto and welded it in ourselves.It fit really well.
