I found the spindles are the same...thank you.

But are the front 5 lug hubs the same?

Well, with drum brakes the hub is the brake drum. And with discs, it is the rotor. If you're asking if the boltpattern is the same, yes it is.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding something?

I think so.

I am unfamiliar with the drum brake setup. My baer brake kit is calling for Drum brake spindles and I am sure I reuse the hub in some way as the baer kit is missing the hub part of the rotor.

---the following is speculation here---

This being said, it looks as if the factory discs bolt to the backside of the factory hub. I was thinking that the factory drum probably sleeved over the front of the hub lubs similar to how the rear drums slide over the rear lugs to the axle hub.

Then I thought that if this is true that the drum brake hubs are probably different than the disc brake hubs.

---so can anyone correct me?--- ::

Unlike many newer brake designs where the rotor is a separate component from the hub, the '67 rotor has the hub attached to it by the wheel studs that are pressed through the hub and rotor. You can separate the two only by pressing out the lug studs. I'm unsure whether the hubs are the same between disk and drum, as when ever I bought a new disk the hub came with it.

You better keep looking in the box 'cause either you are confused or you are missing the hub. Baer has bolt on rotors to the hub they supply.

The original Ford rotors were two piece, but all modern replacements are cast with the hub and five studs in place.

I recently did the drum/disc swap, and the new rotors will slide right onto your existing spindles.

Well that is good and bad news.

Will have to call baer and see what is up with the missing parts.

Thanks jay.

And yes, that slurred mustang does look like a midyear vette vert.
