Well, the 67's have those 4 piston Kelsey Hayes calipers that can be a bear to rebuild. And, top that with I guess the very early 67's had the small 65/66 brake hose inlet (I have never seen that and I own an October built 67 GT 350) adds to the problem.
OK, the car is about 50 years old, can you read K/H in the casting? If so, those are original and DO NOT let them out of your sight. You can get rebuilt calipers from Autozone, but, unlikely they will be original K/H castings. You will likey also have to order them. And, do just pay and eat the core charge...if you have original K/H castings. Also order the brake pads.
And, then where do you get the rotors turned? Most parts stores have stopped doing that, so, ask around. Down here you can still go to Van Senus Auto parts as they have a machine shop to do this.
On to the rear: If the rear cyls have the small 1/4" headed wheel cylinders, those too are original, and valuable. You can remove those, and send them out to be sleeved. New shoes, and do get the hardware kit. Cutting the brake drums have the same issue as the rotors. Gotta go to an automotive machine shop to get it done.
Cost: well, this stuff is labor intensive, and a saftey issue.
I am a former auto mechanic but really, have no time for other side work. In my younger days I used to do it all the time.
