I am working on a project car (64 SS Chevelle-street car). It has drum brakes. A buddy of mine is building a 71 Chevelle to race it NHRA STOCK Class. It has power disc brakes. To make a long story short, I want to convert to disc (for safety on the street) he wants to convert to drum for his race application. Is it possible for he and I to swap brake systems between my 64 Chevelle and his 71 Chevelle?

Do a SEARCH in the BRAKE forum. Problem you will run into is mounting the combo valve on the 64. It's been discussed before down there.

You have the ideal situation for this swap. You will need to take all of the ovbvious parts and swap them; also include the non-obvious like the brackets that hold the front brake hoses to the frame. You could likely complete the entire exchange in less than one day.
