Will Maverick disc brakes fit my 68?
« on: April 19, 2008, 07:11:19 PM »
A buddy is parting out a 75 and 77 Maverick with power disc brakes and power steering. Will it bolt to my standard 68 Coupe, spindles and all? How about the Grenada? I have heard the front disc brakes are bolt on swap. Any advice?
