Saly, if you're going with the TCI rear frame, I'd seriously look at the TCI front clip also. It bolts right on, has complete MII front, disc brakes, and all. There is some work involved in mounting the radiator and fenders though.

I'm not familiar enough with these cars to comment on the offset. I'd ask the guys at TCI about it. You also need to ask about that rear frame setup. It may require the floor to be cut out. If it does, no need to worry about tunnel clearances.

If it were me, I'd go with the front first. A nice streetable 350/350 combo isn't going to over power the stock unit body. You could even run the stock rear axle for a while with tires that fit the factory wheel wells -- they will break loose before the axle breaks. If you plan on tubbing right away that won't do, of course!

If you decide to ditch the 4 lug set up I am interested in the drums and backing plates as spares for my 63. She has been original too long to change now.
