drums to disc brake

I have a 67 coupe....factory 289/A/C car manual steering and brakes(drums all around). I want to replace drums with disc will a Explorer rear brakes fit? I have an 8" rear and am not changing the center section as this will be a weekend cruiser. Also will booster fit on firewall with no mods? The car has a dual master right now could I just reuse that and install a proportioning valve with setup? I have looked around and the kits for drum to disc swap are like $1200-$1500+ that is why am looking at possible use of Explorer parts. Any suggestions let me know.
Thanks Jim

Front disc brakes are vastly more important than rear disc brakes. You state that the car will be a weekend cruiser so just get the original 4 piston calipers and rotors for the front, leave the rear drum brakes as is and get the correct 1967 disc/drum master cylinder.

one more question...I found a guy in the hood parting out a 2005 GT...will the front brakes fit on my '67? He said $25 take it all I need. Let me know...

Check out Mustang Steve, they have a ton of brackets to make late model brake parts fit just about any spindle or rear end. I had them redo my pedal box for cable conversion, master cylinder and brake booster, etc. Great people. Here's a link: MustangSteve's COBRA and GT Disc Brake Conversions for classic Ford
