Most likely going to have to fab that one up. Corvette, Jaguar, or possibly the later Ford Thunderbird 8.8" rear end set-up.

I agree that you most likely need to fab something yourself.

If I was going to try something like that, I would look at the IRS from a VZ GTO. It is contained in a cradle with coil springs in a similar position as the earlier models. Still would need a lot of fab work but might not be too bad. I am probably overlooking something super important but first look is interesting...
