Here in WA you can buy complete 9" open rear end for around $100, As musky2 said it's a supply and demand kind of thing. A lot of 9' rear ends were made and the ones used in trucks and hi performance applications wound up with stronger housings, bigger bearings, bigger brakes, posi, ect. The factory h/p cars with posi also got a Nodular iron center housing. It was much stronger than the stock cast iron unit. Most likely and factory h/p Torino would have this as part of the h/p option package.
