Which rear end for a 73 El Camino

ive gotten real familiar with the engine section but i guess its time to start thinking about my transmission setup. im totally restoring a 73 el camino. im doing a 383 with roughly 500 hp. its going to be used 99.9% of the time on the street, but maybe once in a blue moon be taken to the strip. 500 hp is a lot ya but its my first car and im still young so of course i want a monster.

my question is what kind of rear end do i need? a 10 bolt, 12 bolt ford 9".....?

i mean i want to spin my tires at stop lights and all that and if it wont break and occasionally rase the front end up.

can i find what i need on like craigslist or a site like that for a couple hundred and put a couple hundred in it and be good?

and suggestions or direction to a website that will explain all this would be helpful
