    Got one out of a crown Vic. Little wider than I would like that’s why Iam looking for other options. Or I can just have this rear end narrowed because it have the disc brakes

    What body style are you building? Coupes and roadster will take a narrower rearend when channeled than a sedan. Also the wheel you are planning to use appears to be one of the wheel vintique wire wheels.

    I've got a 9" Ford that is 65.5", I believe it's a '70-'75 F150. Those should be easy to find.
