1967 Mustang Brake Swap

So I went to the junk yard today and i found a complete front end off a 1972 ford maverick. My question is would the disk brakes from this maverick bolt on to my 1967 mustang? Im going from a 6 cylinder set up to a 5.0 v-8 from a 1991 Mustang

I already got my 5 lug rearened off a 1965 ford ranchero and i already put the v-8 in my car. All i need now is the front brakes

I don't know about the 1967 model year, but they will fit a 1968. I had a set from a 1974 Comet (Mercury version of the Maverick) on my last 1968 Mustang.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Are you sure the Maverick is a 1972?

From what I have been told, the 1969.5 to 1972 Maverick and Comet had 4 wheel Drum Brakes, in 1973 Disk Brakes were an option, and 1974 to 1977 Mavericks and Comets had them standard (some even had Power Disk Brakes).

I know both of my 1972 Comet GTs had 4 wheel Drum Brakes until I changed them over to Front Disk Brakes from later year Mavericks.

Either way, I would check to make sure of the year as getting replacement parts will be difficult if you don't know what year and model car they are originally from.

Hope this helps a little,

Just a note here to possibly help out. Do you realize the spindles you already have on your 67 will bolt on the Factory 67 Mustang 4 Piston per caliper Disc brakes. 11 19/64" rotors, Bigger than Maverick.

Yes, exactly as Ford used in 67 on all the Disc Brake Mustangs/Fairlanes, all the Shelbys as well..

Many folks don't realize the 6 Cylinder cars used the same spindles as the V8 cars 390/428, and all.

Just something to think about using stock tie rods, Stock wheels, Stock 67 Mustang Brakes versus having to get that to fit this.

I have a '67 and I want front disk brrakes.
So from what I read above i can go to a parts store and get '67 Mustang calipers, "67 mustang rotors and a '67 mustang Mastercylinder and I would have what is needed to install front disk barkes?
Proportioning valve? new brake lines too?

Thanks, I want to keep this as simple as possible.
