Every thing is going up big time!You did not say if you wanted the kit or just the brackets to use the disk etc you may have off a donor car.I was going to change my 37Chevy pickup over in Jan..When I called one of the better places they had went from $350 to all most $525!for the kit.Like any thing year and type of car can mean lots.Check the back of mags at news stands and most all have 800 numbers and web sites.Just bracket kits were $160 for mine.I just did a new shoe job on mine for now.

Any correct year GM A-body should work. Classic Performance Parts has a kit w/12" rotors [may require lgr wheels] as well a s others. It runs $300-350 +/- .Options like drilled/slotted rotors, Power assist, & dropped spindles may add to cost. I don't know where they are made. I believe I saw an install article of a CCP kit on the HOT ROD Mgzn site. There are several stores on ebay that sell similar kits.

Scarebird Classic Disc Brakes makes very nice adapter brackets for almost anything. They also sell complete kits using GM & US parts [This isa big deal to me when I am considering a puchase a purchase] Brakes do seem like a good place to buy the cheapest you can find.

You may want to join CLASSIC OLDS: LOTS of info on line... Good LucK!
