Hey guys, JP in Parsons ks. I am buying a 41 ACP or ASC (?)coupe tomorrow. i refer to them as business coupes but it has jump seats instead of the cargo divider so i don't really know what it is. I ha ve a dakota chassis and good magnum 318/518 OD for it. What rear axles are you guys using? i am going to do the dak front clip but keep the stock rear frame sections. I've heard B/E body 8&3/4s are almost bolt-in. I can use a dak rear but i have sure grip third members laying around. I'll post pics soon. I'm getting it out of Oklahoma and was posted on HAMB. JP in the land of oz. 620-820-3793


71 SWB, 413 77 SWB, 318 92 SWB, 5.2 magnum 79 Macho Short bed, 318 03 stratus coupe R/T too many others not on the road!

The dakota clip is a bit wide for the car, you will end up with FWD offset wheels on the front to clear.
If you have read here and the HAMB, you know a lot of guys with these suggest the shock relocation, dropped spindle and disc conversion for savings and ease. If you gotta have a clipped car, they seem to be the most commonly sold as half-done projects...
I used a 68 Coronet wagon axle, changed the spring perches. I have heard the later model Explorers work.
