Wanting to keep the 6 bolt hub look

I'm working on a 1968 C/10 Panel Truck that has had the drum brake front suspension swapped out with a 1974 C/10 disc brake power steering front suspension. I would like to swap the 1974 5 bolt hubs back to the 1968 6 bolt hubs and am wondering if anyone has done this and what parts would fit?
Thank you!

I don't remember who but someone makes six lug rotors ... Is that what you are thinking?

I got a pair from Mcgaughys in 2003. I think they still sell them. I believe other vendors may have them as well.

Re: Wanting to keep the 6 bolt hub look

I installed a front disk brake kit on my 67 Burb. The kit from Classic Performance Products uses 1971 to 87 C10 components. I selected to go with the 6-bolt rotors because my rear axle is 6-bolt. The rotors I have are probably exactly the ones that you need.

Thank you all! I have ordered a kit from Mcgaughys.
I'll post pics as soon as I receive them and get them installed!

Did you keep the old drum brake metal lines? Any chance you have photos of how the rubber hose looks from behind?

I used the original steel brake lines, but needed adapters to fit the hose fittings.

I just noticed your location - I bought The Burb in Saskatoon.
