An economical way to go is to purchase the basic kit (adapters and caliper brackets) from AAJ and buy new parts (calipers, rotors, etc.) from local parts store. AAJ will give you info on what parts you need. I used master cylinder/power booster and proportioning valve from a '75 Plymouth Duster. It bolted perfectly to firewall. It has a 9" booster thus clearing valve covers on my 59 Plymouth 318. Brake lite switch from the Duster also works nicely on your brake pedal.
