Have a Chevy 51 1/2 ton shortbox with a 283 in it. Will be replacing trans with a th350 would a 64 nova rear end be a good swap for the open driveline setup or what year Camaro?
Thanks Ed

Ed,
I'm putting a 283 in my 52-3100 with a Muncie M-20 4-speed out of a '69 Corvette.  I located a GM 12-bolt from a '70 Monte Carlo that fits very well.  Just a suggestion.  Good luck!  Charlie

Thanks Charlie I am possibly thinking about a S10 rear. I may have to check some Monte Carlos as well
