C6 corvette brakes on chevelle

Does anybody know who makes a kit to adapt C5 or C6 brakes on to 68-72 chevelle. I would love to add rear disc but would rather put all 4 vette calipers and rotors on. To me I would rather see Corvette though the rim(18's) than Bear or Brembo or etc. Nothing against those company's ME personally would rather have the baddest GM brakes I could have on my GM muscle.

Re: C6 corvette brakes on chevelle

Kore3.com - Tobin is a very easy guy to talk to on brakes and shares his knowledge without reserve. I bought his 325mm front C6 setup and his Z51 rear disc setup with the drum-in-hat parking brake.

Link in my signature has the build up pics.

'69 SS396 -Build Thread A mishmash of American made suspension components and Australian brakes. L33 obtained, swap in planning phase.

Definitely Kore3. They have everything you need for the swap. Just remember that the Corvette runs a very shallow rotor which places the caliper offset outboard of the wheel mounting face. I am not sure of the standard C5/C6 brakes but I know this requires custom wheels when running the larger Z06 stuff...
