67 Mustang Disc Brake conversion

I am reaching out to the experts here. I have just purchased a 1967 Mustang coupe. It is an original 289 car. I wouldl like to install front disc brakes on the car, but have no idea if other Ford cars have the parts I can use to do this conversion. I realize there are a number of after market kits, but I thought I might save some money if I could pilfer a doner car. If anyone has some insight, I would greatly appreciate it. I may do rear discs at a later date, but the fronts are my first priority.
Thanks.

If you want a "junkyard" swap then:

And I may have a set of Granada spindles at a friends place.

Re: 67 Mustang Disc Brake conversion

Hemikiller is right, take a look at this site.

Dennis is great to work with and has very reasonable prices.

Also, if you have a small bearing 8" or 9" rearend you can use the rear disc brake set-up from an early 90's Crown Victoria. You just have to grind off a small piece of the backing plate so that it mounts flush against the flange, and then everything bolts right up.
My power 4-wheel disc brake set up works extremely well and all of the replacement parts are very inexpensive at any parts store.
