Dave, I have to disagree that a 12 bolt is stronger than a 9" Ford rear-end. Not sure if that's what you meant to put, but the 9" is most definitely stronger, and it's easier to work with as well.
Anyhoo, I'm with you that I'd RATHER see a 12 Bolt under the big Chevy. The 12 Bolt is a great rear-end and suitable for all but the most demanding drag-racers.
FWIW to ya Bossman, I like Currie and Moser as well. Long ago I bought a Currie 9" for my 69 Camaro RS. They're both good companies.
Sorry but I'm not sure how big of a tire/rim combo you can put under there I'd *guess* that the 15x10 and a P285 or P295 is about it and of course, each car will vary a little. You may want to roll the lip on the wheelwell/quarterpanel as well.
Oh, Bossman, that's a great looking '66 you got there!!!! Love it! Hope my Ebay '66 turns out looking that good.
Great looking and well detailed motor too. Does that air-cleaner say 427? If it does, that's a monster small-block, I'm jealous.
