67-69 Camaro disc brakes work on 63 Impala

Don't ask why, but I have a brand new front disc brake conversion for 67-69 Camaro's/68-74 Nova's sitting in my garage. I'm pretty sure the caliper mounting bracket is different, but I was wondering if the hub part of the discs will fit on my 63. I know the calipers will cross as they are pretty generic. I just know that if I try to sell my kit I'm probably not going to get but a maybe $150 and then I have to mess with shipping. If it saves me $150 in building my own conversion kit it will be worth the hassle saved.

Wrong steering arms. Won't work because the tie rod is on the wrong side of the spindle.

The other factor is your Impala weighs a half ton more than a Camaro, so the spindles are not designed to have a third more weight applied on them constantly.

Hmmm....they might work. Contact a company that specializes in brakes, such as CPP and tell them what you have. They will let you know if the parts will work. They also sell caliper brackets.
