Lightbulb any one know of cost effective disc brake swap for the mopar A body???

1967 dart 6 cylinder car and it needs some good disc brakes on the car, plan on drag racing 1/8 mile and we want her to be safe and stop well, the tiny brakes on it will not do the job safely.

thanks,

Later

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

POL offers a kit for around $400. Here's an article on the swap -

I put a set on a friend of mines 73 and it made the track width wider so you'll have to offset that with wheels to keep the fenders from rubbing.
Check this site out.

Get later model parts ,like from a 73 and newer duster it's all basically interchangable. I did a swap for drums to disc on an a body some years ago had less then $350 into everything.
