I have a 1956 2 door wagon, it's the 210 model. I will be running a mild 383 producing about 450hp at the most. Do you think the factory rear end will be up to snuff?

If its a posi and you never get serious traction and dont do hard launches it will last a good while but, it really boils down to how hard or easy you drive it. Your motor is in the area of really needing a stronger rear end to match it.

It depends on what your looking to do. If you plan on launching it hard the rear might not hold up. You haven't told us what gear ratio you have or whether or not it's a stick car or automatic.
