    Early chevy II, Ford Granada, Lincoln Versailles, 4x4 s-10. These are a few that come to mind that are close to the right width.

    I wanted to stay with the 4 3/4" Chevy bolt pattern so I went with an early Camero rear end. Fit just right.

    I used the complete drivetrain from a 73 Nova SS, Motor,Trans and Rear Axle, even the driveshaft after cutting to length. Check out build photos at www.melswell.com :D Mel
