Boy was I surprised when I looked under the 64.5 today. I've never seen a Ford with this kind of rearend. What is it? I'm sure it's original, as is the whole car.

Do all sixes have this style rearend? What's it called? Do they still refer to it as an 8 inch? It looks like a totally different animal.

I guess maybe I should get the Doofus award for getting so excited. I've had four Mustangs, but this is the first 6 cylinder.

Anyone know why I only have 6 spark plugs in this engine? It's probably a rare factory screwup. *LOL*

It is a 7 1/4" rear end, rear loader, non removeable carrier.They worked great in Falcons, Mustangs were a different story.

The 7 1/4 was OK but it was one of those things that could not withstand any abuse. With a six and automatic it could last a while.

Behind a V8 you will find that the gears are made of Cheetos.

I guess you'll have to replace that before you drop that hot 427 in, huh? *G* Dickson
