Does a 67 rear end bolt right into a 66 - What's a 67 8 inch locking rear worth. Guy wants $275 - out of a 67 GT 3.00 gears, complete still got the wheels on it.

It's too wide. 65-66 are the same. 67-70 are the same. 71-73 are the same.

Massive rubbing! for whatever reason my coupe had a 67/78 rear in it when i got it, it rubbed and rubbed and rubbed till i put the correct rear in. if you changed ur wheels offset/backspacing it would work w/o rubbing but thats just extra $$$. and $275 is a rip off, you should be able to get one for around $125-150, they are pretty plentiful. oh and yeah it will bolt right in but like above its 2 in wider that the 64-66.

The locking rears are very hard to find. I'll give the guy $275 right now if it's in New England, and not cracked. Many of the early 8" rears are cracked. The Mid 70's trac lok's are even harder to find, as those are prime pickins! Especially the rare 3.40:1 and 3.55:1

Open rear ends are a dime a dozen. I had to give one away to get it out of my yard.

I'm shelling out $800 for a rebuilt trac loc with 3.55:1 gears.
