rear end

If it is a 9 inch and complete the going price is 300 to 500 around here depending if the rotors and calipers are good ...If parts are missing it is scrap price Ford hasn't made alot of the replacement parts for 15 years

It's a pretty good bet that it's a 9 3/8", not a 9". Ford used the larger ring gear in the luxo barges and there are no hot rod parts for them such as optional ring and pinion gears. So, from a hot rodding standpoint, they are a dud.

It's a 9" as the VERSAILLE was based on the GRANADA during that period.

The 9 3/8" was on the large LINCS.

What he has used to be in large demand.

Back when there weren't all sorts of options for swapping to rear disk brakes in 65-73 Mustangs, the Versailles rears were in pretty good demand. They would bring around $400. These days there are many more options out there, the Versailles disk design isn't that good, and simple replacement parts are getting rarer and more expensive all the time. So they have fallen out of favor.
All that said, a Versailles rear complete and in good condition will still bring around $400. There's still a certain demand and those rears are getting rarer all the time.

Its really popular with the Maverick, Pinto, and Mustang crowd. The Versailles rear end is the narrowest production 9" and its in high demand for the fact that its a close fit (and the disc brakes)
