Is it necessary to have a disc brake conversion for my corvair?
Not in my opinion or experience. Some people change fronts to discs but very few do all four wheels due to cost and complications in dealing with e-brakes.
Stock Corvair brakes maintained in good condition are recognized as being very capable on their own with no real need to swap to discs for normal use. I run front discs on my V8 Toro conversion because they came already installed by a previous owner but all of my other Corvairs use stock components. I would rather spend the funds on other items. I don't run dual master cylinders either. I keep my brakes in good repair, flush them every 5 years of so and keep my e-brake in good shape.
