i don't have a stock rear end, but I have already had this one under my car with tires and it fits perfect, i did some research and they are the same width here is a chart of all 9 inches;

it says the versatilea is 58" and the stock rear for the 63 belair is 60 but when it is in it sure doesn't seem shorter

I was wondering what happened with this. Any pics of how you did the rearend?
Engine bay looks a lot better. Did you strip down the rust before painting?

I just threw in a stock rear end from this 64 Impala I traded a trailer for (than traded the Impala for a radiator and motor mounts, made a deal with the first guy that I would NOT scrap it, made the same deal with the second guy not enough of these around to be scraping them out).

Got the motor and 4 speed in today, hoping to get the cross member built tomorrow than start on the clutch linkage and peddal assembly, don't have anything to go off from so it is looking like trial and error time.

I am deciding if I should go ahead and order new pans or try my hand at fabing up some from scratch, never done it before

It's got to be cheaper to order new ones, right????

Looks like lots of complex shapes to that floor board.

But, I can't say that I've done alot of sheet metal replacement. All the sheet metal on my project is flat.

Good Luck

Keep up the good work!!

Congrats on getting the motor fired up!

Are aftermarket patch panels available for that year/model? Personally I would buy them rather than make them from scratch, but I guess that depends on your plans for the car.

Wish I would have caught you needed a factory rear end, I have the one out of my 64 Impala SS that needs a good home.
Also have all the factory suspension parts front and back in good shape, and powder coated gloss black for a smokin deal if you have a need
