Will rear parking brake calipers from 82-85 firebird fit my 68 Camaro?

I just bought a kit (less calipers)from speedwaymotors.com to install rear disc brakes on my Ford 9" rearend going in my 68Camaro.The weld-on caliper brackets are for metric size calipers.Can i go to Advance and get lifetime calipers from 82-85 Firebird or Camaro and still have my parking brake if so will my existing cables work?

The Trans am and camaro rear calipers should work, they have the emergency brake on them, some Cadillac calipers will also work.
Your existing cable setup will have to be changed or modified.
