Hey, I am about to buy a 9 inch tracloc. But it is from a 72 lincoln. Would this be a perfect fit for a 72 mustang?? Do you think I should get it for 300 bucks??? Thanks,

i'm assuming you already have a 9" open rear end. Yes you can change the center section from one 9" to another 9".

The other consideration is what the gear ratio of the rear end is. teeth of the ring divided by teeth of the pinion. The 2.80 and 3.0 are highway cruising gears, 3.25 and 3.5 are power gears. What gears does the lincoln have and are they doing what you want?

As long as both are 9" and have the same # axle splines.... Several different pinion yokes, you may have to swap if you decide to use the entire chunk.
