I was wondering if anyone knows of any other donor cars that will work for the disc brakes on a 65 Mustang FB. In particular, a 1975 Torino. I have one already that is ready for the boneyard but I thought that it might have some usefull items, i.e. brakes, rear end. Any thoughts? BTW I haven't measured anything on the spindle because short of actually trying the swap because in this area I think the numbers have to match exactly and I could probably get it to fit with my "universal tool" (Hammer).
Thanks.

I don't think Torinos will work. You would be safe with Granadas, Monarchs, Mavericks and Comets.

If you're up for a little custom fabrication work, check this out:

I just pressed the drums off the stock hubs and pressed the Crown Vic rotors right on. It's not quite done yet, but with the exception of the caliper mounts it's all available at your local parts store. The caliper mounts I'm making out of 1/4" steel plate.

I did borrow part of the Granada brake swap plan for the master cylinder and distribution block.
