62-67 nova possi rear end

a rear end from a early ford bronco, i think it's called a B body will fit under a early nova with out having to shorten it. 52 1/8" backing plate to backing plate if I remember correctly. Cut the leaf spring mounts of a stock Nova rear and weld them to the Ford unit. You now have a 9"Ford under the Nova. I filled mine w/a Detroit locker center, a little harsh for the street but never a problem. I also installed a multi leaf spring and a sway bar. Be sure you weld those spring perches onto the ford housing correctly, the drive shaft needs to be in phase w/the transmission or the car may vibrate. I think it's 3 degrees above the center line and the trans is 3 below the center line. do some research on this.

You can use a late 50's Ford 9" and it will bolt right in. A late 70's Granada/Monarch/Versailles rear will also bolt right in, the Versailles were all 9" disc brake rears, some of the Granada/Monarch 9" rears have drum brakes. An early Mustang rear will also work.
