Upgrading to a Posi Rear End

Restoring a 68 Tempest, want to go with a posi.
Have searched for a complete axle swap, but no luck so far.
Any good suggestions for swapping out the carrier/gears alone?
Sunday cruiser, so nothing fancy or high perf is needed.
Engine is a 400, I have someone who can help with the gear swap. Just need an idea what to buy and where?? Thanks!

He built me a new Pontiac rear 3:55.1, he also built a friends for his '68 GTO. Prices are reasonable, and so is shipping.

He custom built it himself, I never asked where he got the gears from he may have told me but I don't recall if he did. He warranted it too. Runs great, very quiet. I'd buy again from him without shopping around.
