My 2 cents......10" section width is close but doable without body mods. As RMK noticed (I didn't), you mentioned tread width, and I just don't know.
For some reading on what I went thru, here's a link to a thread I ran a few years back that touched on a lot of related details.

A 10" tread would have around  11"-11 1/2" section width, depending on wheel width. I have M/T street radials, 255/ 60/ 15's on an old set of 8 1/2 ' Centerline auto drags and it's close. 1/2" to the wheel lip that I trimmed slightly and around 3/4" to the leaf spring. The section width on my M/T's are 10 1/4".

With the right back space and getting the housing narrowed you may just have enough room....maybe.

I've done some measurements and it looks like I can fit a 10in tread width in my wagon. I don't want to radius the rear. I was wondering if anyone had experience with this.

And so the progress begins!

I too am another del rio guy - welcome! Personally, I'd love to see a gasser version - as long as it stays powered by Ford.  :003: I hope you get some more pictures of it posted.

Hey, I wanted to ask your permission to use one of your photos on our facebook page as the page header for a little while...any one of these with all 4 cars in it would be a cool header..

I asked Terry, who took the photos and he said "have at it". :003:

hello from another del Rio guy ( over the pond)!
a 312 powered DR RW is a nice and rare model anyways ! is it Auto or std trans?
A Del Rio has the full CUSTOM 300 trim package. it is the the dual ss swept side trim w/ the gold anodized aluminium trim panel between them.
It's what makes a Del Rio and it's looking awesome.
