Nothing yet to the specific year or anything. Probably just going to fab up something myself. I follow a guy on Instagram diesel_patina and he put a 12v in a 1964 slammed and all which is cool to see. He bought a roadster shop chassis and I think fabbed mounts but might have just told them what he was doing not sure but definitely cool to check out.

UPDATE: Ive gone with a 6bt running a nv4500. ive gone with this because I think the power will be much better then with the 4bt and they're mostly going cheaper then the 4bt believe it or not and I have the space to run it! Soon the motor and tranny will be here ill be taking pictures of that as soon as it does and post it. At the moment ive only been mostly still disassembling. I dont work on it as much as I wish I could so its a bit of a slow process for me.

Also wanting to ask to just been 100% this rear end I have here is an 8 inch correct?
