    As Bigyellataxi says, anything reasonably modern is going to have disc brakes. Early (pre 2002 IIRC) Vauxhall Frontera rear axles had drum brakes. They are 6 stud, but that's on 5.5" PCD, so there's plenty of room to re-drill for 5 studs on a small PCD.

    9" would work, but maybe a bit OTT with a Flathead 6 up front as a power unit. 9" is really strong obviously as well as heavy, but is a big power drain with that massive Hypoid offset the pinion has (the main reason why it's so strong).

    But a 7.5" axle used in the small engined Fox body Mustang would be about 60" wide too, think most are 4 on 4.5" PCD but some are 5 on 4.5" IIRC.
