I have a 39 Chevrolet Master Deluxe that has the orginal closed drive. I want add a open driveline and change the rear differential. I am going to put a T5 transmission. So what driveline and rear differential. I would like to be able to cruize on the highway. The car has a 235 engine. So any help would greatly be appreciated.

There was a 39 for sale locally a year or so ago that had been converted just as you are asking about. Still running the original inline 6, and a T-5 trans. I believe that they used the rear axle out of an S-10, along with the S-10 transmission. The car was definitely driver quality, and it looked to be a well done conversion. I don't remember if they had changed the front brakes, but the suspension & steering was original. I would have bought it, but I have too many cars now. I don't know what the original width is for the 39 rear axle, but the S-10 rears came in two widths, depending on 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive. I don't know the numbers off-hand.
