Just reading an article about disc brakes on a 68 and it shows them removing the plate to install a power booster. This article was in 4/85 MMonthly. You're going to need a different pedal hanger bracket. The power brake pedal is longer and attaches to the top of the bracket. May be wrong but believe that the existing bracket can be drilled for the longer pedal.

Well I finally got that plate off the firewall. The da*n thing was tack welded on.
The good side is I now own an extensive collection of pry bars and other such tools.....
