Austin Princess SBC Help Needed

Hey, I'm lookin at droppin a SBC into an Austin Princess. As its my first project like this, Im struggling with the rear end set up. The princess is a front wheel drive so I would have to convert it to use a back axle but is there enough room to do that at the back of a princess? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Phil

Alright! Another wild idea!

I hope I can help. First off, how narrow is the distance between the rear backing plates, how wide are the wheel wells, and how do you plan to spring it? All I can do is advise you how I would do this if it were mine.....
Ford 9" narrowed to fit with 31 spline truck axles, suspended by a fully adjustable 4-link and coils with a watts link for centering. Brakes? All depends on what you want up front. Glad to see such a unique and off-the wall idea. Most all the parts you would need can be found in a Speedway catalog.
