Ford 9" rear

Question for you guys.

I have a 1950 Ford F1 that I'm going to drop a 429 into.

I need to change out the rear end.

From backing plate to backing plate it appears to be 55 1/2" inches.

I'd like to put something in that has disc brakes and limited slip.

What donor vehicles should I be looking at?

Robert

Looks like you may have to shorten one.......how about wheel offset?
Check here http://maliburacing.com/ford_9_inch/ford_nine_inch.htm
Look at the bottom of the page.

An 8.8 from an Explorer would be a very close fit and they can be found with discs, have 31 spline axles and limited slip units with decent gears (3.55, 3.73)
