'71-'72 are the only ones that will fit and have 5-lug axles. They will also be a little bit wider than what you have now, but there's plenty of room unless you have HUGE tires. But none will have disc brakes unless somebody modified them. The factory only made drum-brake rear ends back then.

There were some later '70 rear ends that were the same width as the '71-72, but they still had 6-lug axles. The axles from a '71-'72 will fit in that rear end, but not in yours.

The big Lincoln Continentals in the 70's had a 5 on 5 pattern rear disc brake set up pattern on a 9" rearend if you want to go this route.
