The factory swadged the wheel studs which reduced any knurl from the wheel stud protruding beyond the wheel hub. The wheel stud is smaller in diameter than the wheel stud holes in the rotor. AMC evidently never intended service departments to replace the rotor alone. This deduction insinuates the  common repair was to replace with a new rotor with new hub already swadged in place as a package from the parts department. Wish we could turn the clock back to 1968 and walk into a AMC parts department and inquire.
The most powerful tool is the question.

May be a silly question but,

has anyone had success taking a drum brake spindle hub and mating it with a slip on rotor?

It may take machining of the outside of the hub and possibly the center also, but then you would have cheaper, easily replaced rotors.

I would imagine only a place with a large inventory of brake parts could make this sort of match.
