    I am looking for a rear end for my project. Those of you who have built T coupes what rear end did you use and what vehicle did you get it out of? Year and model? Any help would be appreciated.

    Banjo rear or later style? Ford Mustangs and Maverick 8" rears are narrow and have small ford lug pattern. Ford station wagon 9" rears from the late 50's to mid 60's are also narrow with small lug pattern. If a banjo, the 35-37 are the narrowest with good parts availability. Some people are running late 8.8 ford rears, they can be had realitivly cheap and come in different widths. It all depends on your budget and horsepower.

    Ya runnin' fenders???? An 8" outta a Mustang or Fairlane is @ 58" flange to flange....eary Bronco is as well, but has large Ford pattern.
    I'm using an 8.8 out of an '89 Explorer....they are cheap, strong and have a few nice ratios, some with limited slip. They're @ 60", perfect if fenderless and channelled...

    I have '55-'56 rear ends in my '32 and '36 Roadster. Chevy pattern and you can run '47-'49 International "16 steel wheels that accept a '40 Ford style hub cap ( chevy pattern).

    They are pretty narrow and fit model A's and T's well, I think "57 wide.
