    I immediately thought of Glen Dodd and his '48 Plymouth Business Coupe.

    Article shows website with his phone number; he'd love to hear from you and would be glad to offer suggestions about handling high power in one of the old chassis.
    He takes trophys in everything from Good Guys Autocross to One Lap road course days, where he's often top time against modern hot iron.

        I located locally a Ford 9" rear end with 4-11 gears out of a Ford Bronco , outside of brake drum to outside of brake drum is 58 1/2 inches. Will this rear end work for my car?

          I don't have one to check it to. Check it to your 48's then measure what clearance is there that you will need. Sounds too wide.

                The 47-52 rear axle assemblies were narrower than the 53 and newer assemblies.
