Default Aluminum Drums?

I have been trying to find some more information about putting aluminum front and rear drums on my 1964 GTO. I was thumbing through an older High Performance Pontiac and noticed one guy had 65-66 Buick aluminum drums on the front and someone else had rear aluminum drums on a 12 bolt but it did not say what they came off of. Anyone got any ideas?

Here's a link to an HPP article about aluminum drums and what cars had them.

Do a search for Buick Grand National on Ebay for the rears, their are usually a couple of sets of them listed for around 80 - 100 bucks.
