the width is wrong and the spring perches are on the wrong side of the axle shock mounts are wrong. but i'm sure there are a lot of people who will take it off your hands!! with some fabrication you can make it work, the price is excellanttttttt.

A GM 10 bolt from a Nova fits perfect! The spring perches are space correctly and will fit your orginal springs. And the gear ratio is great for cruzing and hwy. You wont have to do anything to it but clean it up and paint it. If you want Posi. check out <a href="http://www.powertrax.com" target="_blank">www.powertrax.com</a> Ill be adding this to mine. I got mine out of '76 Nova for 100 bucks.

With the help of a good machine shop you can have the existing mounts removed and just weld on new ones in the proper location. However, you will need to have the rear end narrowed and axles re-splined. For a good 9” with disks it would be worth the effort and expense.

Good luck.

Jump on it. Even if you dont need it, you can make money on it. Paint it up real purdy and you it will bring $250. If you do get it and dont need it, please PM me. I am in need of one of the emergency brake levers if you would be interested in selling it. I would make it worth your while. I travel for a living and have looked through alot of wrecking yards with no luck finding the lever.

I have yet to find even one of those rears in a yard. All the lincolns I find have the rear removed, so if you think you will use it in the future I'd buy it.
