    I am going to put a transverse Ford spring on mine with dropped axle too. It's a better way to go, decided to make a street/ race car! Picked up a PONTIAC/OLDS REAR END! Going 4 link rear with coil overs.
    Thanks for the measurements, the 9.3 has 35-spline strange axles and spool with 4:10 gears and new drum brakes. How wide is the rear end on yours from drum to drum? Mine is currently 60"
    Thanks for the info and I preciate it.

    Went and saw Ralph in Red Bud Illinois yesterday and took Saltflats with me, and picked up some top end parts for my 31 Chevy coupe build. Committed to a 409 in the hot rod now.
    Picked up a set of aluminum Walla heads and a custom aluminum Intake 2-4's . Mr. 409 (RALPH) has quite a collection of cars and parts. Here's some of his collection and I will post pictures of the heads later tonight. And remember to burn a tire!;)

    Hey Tooth,
    What is the deal with the tail end of that '63 Biscayne? It's looks like a combination of a lot of things familiar but definitely not stock!

    I'm not sure, he said it was originally a 6-cylinder car that he turned into a 409 4 speed car. The only thing he really mentioned about it was the paint was original paint. That's all I really know about it and it's a very clean and straight. I was a little distracted because I was thinking about those heads sitting over there on the table right next to it with that intake. LOL and I managed to talk him out of them and bring them home!;)

    Great score on the heads! As for the car it certainly looks to me like that is a '62 trunk with the emblems switched around.

    It's been a busy two days, here are the pics of the Bob Walla heads I picked up from Ralph in Red Bud Illinois Sunday. I believe he told me these were the second set of heads that Bob made and he bought them about 10 years ago. They look really good but as you can see in the pics the intake guides extend too far down in the bowls. Buddy of mine has a tool to cut the guides back up to the edge of the aluminum in the bowl and that will make the intake flow much better. Other than that I just have to have the Springs tested, but I'm not really sure what I'm going to run for a Cam yet. The Springs right now are set up for a 750 lift solid roller. He could not tell me the installed height or the seat pressure. They might even possibly be dead but they haven't been compressed for a long time, just sitting. I will probably run a solid roller also but not sure of the specs yet. There's a number on the end of the head that has a 20-11 and I want to try to call Walla heads and see what that means. I'm thinking that maybe the number means 11 out of 20 pairs? The intake has a plate bolted to it for 2-4 s. The nice thing is I can use the mill and make me a new plate and put a belt driven air breather on it. LOL down the road... They look almost like they're brand new!
