The photos also show that there is a space between the Spritget disc hub and the rotor. What is the diameter of the center hole/cavity in the front rotor? Do you think it will fit over BMC drum brake front hub? But would the caliper clear Minor wheels? I assume on the Nissan it is sandwiched between the wheel and hub. It looks like the rear disc will fit on the front hubs as the drums originally did. The braking surface on the rear disc looks smaller, but might be a good disc for a front only conversion.

Re-drilling also may not be required. 3/8 studs on 4" PCD will should fit nicely in 7/16 stud on 100mm rotor. If it doesn't center well, then the retaining screws would take care of that until the wheel is tightened. A Marina style adapter plate (as yours are) is not that difficult to make to mount a chosen caliper. Floating calipers with one piston shouldn't be too difficult to fit behind the wheels. Just need a rotor with a suitable offset. This is a project I'll be able to take on at some point.
