You could use an 8" or 9" ford rear, not a ton of power in the 302 so no big problem there. Get on www.speedwaymotors.com and you'll find all kinds of parts related to your build. I would also try and get in touch with some of your local hot rod guys or a car club..."been there done that" kind of thing. Maybe one of them could give you some info on a local supplier, good luck.

Also DON'T trash can the old driveline, put it on craigs list or similar. It's worth $$$$ to someone.
