It's the 8.5 10 bolt, which means it's not a first gen Camaro rear end. The 8.5 wasn't put into production until '71. It could be a second gen Camaro rear end, which would make it 61 inches wide. If it is 60 inches wide then it's a '72 or later Nova, Omega, Ventura or Apolo rear end.

Had you gone to the link I provided you back at post #3 you'd have easily seen it was a 8.5 corporate 10-bolt.

The limited info I have shows the rear ratio to have originally been a 2.56, and from a '72 X-body. If it's still got the original diff, it's a 2-series carrier and cannot use 2.73-up gears unless a spacer is used (which I wouldn't recommend). You will probably find it's an open diff anyway.

Yes it is an open. I'm thinking for now this diff will work but I'll upgrade when I drop the 450 hp motor in. I will look up what an X body is and see if I can put together brakes for this rear. I can not afford to drop cash on the disk setups. I may hit up a junk yard and just get a full brake set from them to through on. I'm gonna post a question in the Brake section now to find out what manual brakes I can put on this so I can retain the remaining orriginal brakes on this car.

X body is Nova, Omega, Ventura or Apolo. Any brakes from a '65 to '77 Chevy car except full size will work. You can also use brakes from a later S10 truck as long as it has the 4 bolt backing plates.
