I have a backhalfed '70 Chevy Nova I picked up a while ago. I bought the car with no rear end and plan to put in a ford 9 inch. I do however have a motor plate in the car and it is centered in the frame rails. Would this mean the pinion for the rear end would also be centered in the car??

A centered pinion is the normal location for cars constructed with chassis completely built. Some times a door car with a orgional drove shaft tunnel requires a offset pinion for clearance issues.
The reason some factory orgional cars have a offset pinion is it lets the rear end have equal length axles.
