Will this pair including spindles even work on a 65? They are used so I'm anticipating new rotors, caliper rebuilds including pads and hoses. $1,200 for new out of the box disc brake conversions seems steep but which is better?

You should try Chock. His kits are OEM type kits.

Possibly stepping out of line--but need to vent a older fellows felling on the "will fit if" brakes for the vintage Mustangs.
Why buy a brake system composed of various parts from other makes, homemade brackets, parts that fit other braking system.
If the owner has a 64 65 66 V8 Mustang, a 67 Mustang just install the original 4 piston K/H style Disc brakes. YES, 4 piston calipers 11/19 64th inch rotors.
These stopped all the Shelbys 64 65 66 all the FE, Shelby cars in 67.
Yes doing it period correct, 30 years from now--ORDER your correct pads, clip, hardware, rotor go home bolt it up. This will not be possible when installing these various, mixed parts, again "will fit if" braking systems.--Who will know what components was used in the install?

Have great brakes, and SAVE LOTS!

Nope. Fox-body spindles have no provision for an upper ball joint, being a MacPherson Strut-type suspension.
