It's done all the time. My Willys has stock spindles with Ford Torino hubs and rotors and home made caliper mounting brackets adapted to them. My wife's '56 Bel Air had '62 Chevy roller bearing hubs in place of the original ball bearing hubs. Just depends on being able to find the right hub and brake caliper that can be easily adapted to the old spindle.

i know your costs would be very high, but Speedway motors in Nebraska, has a catalog that has the adapters you need for the early spindles to a variety of different rotor, caliper combos.
