I can't help you with the front end, but I could suggest that with a little tweaking the Dodge Street Charger would work great for the rear end providing you're doing 1/16th scale...now that I think about it you probably aren't are you?

The front end looks a lot like the Mustang II front end that comes in the AMT Phantom Vickie. But, I'm not 100% sure if that is the setup in your photo. The rearend is definitely a Ford nine inch with a strengthening rib welded to the back of it. You should be able to find one of those in any of the Monogram Pro Stock or Pro Sportsman kits. If those are too narrow,get a stock unit from an AMT '66 Fairlane and add the rib and four link brackets to it.

I believe this may be the rear end in the 1:1. This is a fabricated housing, I believe. Note the wide, straight, slanted, not curved, shoulders on the housing...

...and there are differing 9" housings, so make sure you get the right one...

I haven't seen that particular housing in a kit, but a lot of Nascar models have a reinforced 9" which is close, but you'd still have to make the brace and 4-link brackets. The arms are separate on this Nascar 9", and the detail is good...

This is the Phantom Vickie front end. You be the judge. Your 1:1 shot shows the front end up in the air. With weight on it, it would sit like this model. They both are Mustang II geometry, but your 1:1 has a kinked upper arm.
