I'v been told a 8 or 9" rear would bolt right in for my 67 coupe. Can any one tell me what car I can pull one out of? please specify the make/model/year.
Thanks

An 8" or 9" from a V8 Mustang from '67 thru '70(?) will bolt right in with a U-joint mod. Aslo, an 8" or 9" from an '75-80 Granada, Monarch, or Versaille will drop right in. Others will work as well, but these are the ones that have dead on flange spacing.

Just something to think about...

As you are looking for a new rear end anyway, you can probably pick up one from one of the 75-80 models above with rear disc brakes still attached. It'd be a quick, easy, and cheap way to uprade to discs and a 9" rear.

Did you know that 65-70 Mustangs have a design deficiency that may result in fuel entering the passenger compartment during a rear-end collision? Send me a private message for info and fixes.

Find a good 77-80 Granada and rob the front disk brakes and the rear end assembly. try www.valuparts.com.

[color:blue]if you dont mind a challenge, and you want to be different... a rear from a 97 explorer is the same width as a 67 and has disc brakes, the yoke is different, but i made it work on my 66, and i'm 19, dont discount the 8.8, all the late model boys run em, and with nice results... also the explorers come with either 3.55 gears or 3.73's and all come with 31 spline axels, check out my website for more info, or feel free to ask more questions if you are interested in the swap...
