    Don’t know a whole lot about this swap yet and was just looking into it. Would this conversion work on my 65 New Yorker and if not what should I be looking for?

    NO! The is a HUGE difference is size between C Body brakes and suspensions and those of A and B.

    There has been quite a few conversions here. A search will reveal what works. On my '66 300 I opted for the '73 conversion with 73 spindles and calipers, 67 dual booster and master. The '73 spindles and caliper brackets are getting harder to find. Very happy with my conversion.

    Here is my thread and an idea what you might be getting into. '73 disc conversion on Goldie
