It sounds like you're not worried about doing metal work and welding -- If so I'd ditch the pan altogether and do a tube chassis -- a ton of weight reduction right there

Since you're starting from scratch -- I'd recommend looking at what Mike Lawless did to his Ghia in the rear -- I'm fighting putting anything bigger than a 225 in the rear and it is really killing me -- fit you're going to keep the torsions I'd recommend a 3" narrowing on each side and some tubbing in the rear at a minimum (10" fits then) -- You can always run 8" slicks, which is what you'll want with a NA 2332 or the 10's when you step up to a boosted engine, which you should anyway LOL

I'm thinking of doing new rear swing arms and going coil overs like Mike did -- -- It is just a little beyond what my 1/2 garage with my current ambition level can handle right now LOL
