A Jag rear end in an 'A' is tough as that car is so narrow and the rear end so wide at 63-64+/- inches when you need something in the 57-58 inch width to fit under normal fenders or without hanging way out past a fenderless body. Yeah, you can modify it to fit. But correctly? I would suggest that you look at an aftermarket supplier for an engineered kit - for instance Heidt's, tho very expensive($7000+) vs an 8/9 inch Ford for a few hundred

Jag irs.
The XkE Jag is narrow enough to fit easily but has wire wheels. Kits or sedan pieces can be used for 5 lug chevy wheel patterns. A retired machinist in San Martin, Calif lived just north of Me and built complete Model A chassis using the Jag XkE torsion bar front and the XkE Rear suspensions. It has been about 10 years since I was to California and visited his shop behind his house . Most XKE parts are now expensive too because of restoration demands. Jag sedan rear ends can be narrowed, and new tubular half-drive shafts fabricated. There are various width's of rears used in the sedans. My son had an XJS rear in his 22 dodge lakester. We used the CCR T bucket plans, moved the upper spring-shock mounts inboard as per the plan but it is still a little too stiff for my liking. Google Jag IRS IFS suspension swaps and you will find lots of info K & K custom crosmembers in australia or new Zeland has custom parts to use the Jag sedan front suspension parts.
