As long as it won't hurt anything I'm fine with it.
I know a guy with a 242 and 231 case I could buy off him. Just gotta decide which route I want to go or if I just want to rebuild my 249

The 249 is a great case as long as you don't need 2wd because you're lunched in the front.

Oil change with 6 quarts of rotella T6 and a pure one filter as usual. There isn't to much left to fix on her before I can it and put some real tires on. Just a bad brake line, engine/trans mounts and a suspected rear carrier bearing (last one will be an issue though).

I filled her up with gas, fluids are/ were good, did a 80 mile cruise hitting 75 - 85, no issues, until the home exit. Her volt meter dropped to around 10 volts, I pulled off the highway to complete my errands, no start after a short stop.
I had replaced the bat cables early in my ownership! Now this is a sign of a true airhead, My new cables were laying beside the OE cables, but the old cables were still hooked up. Obviously a easy fix, .... but, ...I gotta lay off the "shine".

Entirely possible, 60's - 80s were fun! At least I think they were! On a side note, I can still "roll' and drive better than most can text and drive! I just find a well lit area and stop.
