Default 67 fstback disc brake question

I have a 67 fastback big block car. It has the original 4 piston calipers. What are my options on new calipers It needs new rotors I would like to switch to single pistion. just becase these have always been a pain. What is the right move here for a weekend driver that I have just started working on. it has been sitting for 17 years

I would use the disc brake set up of a later model Granada, worked on the 67 Fairlane. May have to change tie rod ends, but atleast parts are available.

If assembled correctly ( use your shop manual) the 4 piston brakes are badazz. My car sat for 17 years and still had pedal. All parts are readily available and cheaper to rebuild than a swap. My personal opinion.
