Updating rear end in 1937 chevy truck
The ECI rear disc brake conversion kit adapts Cadillac Seville/Eldorado rear calipers and 11 inch rear rotors to 8, 8.8 and 9" Ford and GM 10 and 12 bolt GM ('C' clip type), 55-64 Chevy and 8-3/4"/Dana 60 type rear axle assemblies.
Calipers utilize the OEM integral parking brake mechanism and standard GM pads.
It has four-wheel disc brakes, front and rear torsion bars and a Mustang II steering.
Lowell has added 1937 Chevy front fenders, a 1937 Buick hood and a 1940 Cadillac grille.
Anyone know what axle would be the closest and have the right lug pattern?
I'm sure its been done before so any tips would be great!!! I used a '65 Chev half ton rear end in my 46, later 60s truck rear ends are wider.
I just can't hep myself.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Operators are standing by to take your calls!
You can also use a 1940-50 1/2 ton axle housing so you keep stock matching Huck brakes and use a 1955-62 center section to have open drive line. I do not like changing to a rear end with better brakes on it than the front. If you are updating the front brakes than a rear end with Bendix brakes is fine.
The '35 body sits on a 1933 Chevy frame with a 1973 Cadillac 500 linked to a 350 turbo and a Lincoln rear end.How long has the master cylinder been in your classic Chevy?If you're not sure, it's time to install a new one.He has also hand made wooden window trim and a dash for the car.

Either the S-10 two wheel drive or four wheel drive would work.
