Of course, it might not have so much clearance with bigger tires.
I don't recall seeing drop-bolts for CP brakes back when, they were somewhat common for using Campag NR sidepulls on frames designed for 610 CP brakes.
I did that for the "Full Campy" effect on my Internat'l and found that they had to come off for mudguard install.

It will take a bit of planning for a 650B conversion as @FBinNY notes but it's "a thing" on C&V and the whole process is well documented, although not my "thing".
