IIRC the 1962 front end was used until 1976. This would allow for a disc brake conversion using later parts. So I suppose you really dislike drum brakes.

I must be missing something here... my '70 has front disc...?

The older cars didn't have discs but share the same front end pieces. Conversion is much easier than it might be because of this.
