I won't let a question die without an attempted answer, so I put it back to the top.

1956 Lincolns did NOT have the 9 inch Ford from the factory. 1957 was the first year for the 9 inch.........so......if it has a 9 inch.........it could be anything.....because it was installed at a later date......

What is the purpose of the question, what are you trying to do? Do you need a rear for the car? If so, why don't you call some scrapyards and ask if they have any Premiers or if they know the dimensions you are looking for. A lot of those guys know this stuff right off the top of their head. Just a suggestion.

I am thinking he is asking for the purpose of installing a different (and most likely better) axle in his car, but would like to know if there is a 9 inch that will directly swap or at least work with as little effort as possible.

Since I have little information on the 9 inch as far as swapping goes, I didn't directly attempt to answer your original question.

Visit a local scrapyard and bring a tape measure. I searched on the net for the track width and came up with nothing.

Grab a phone book and call some junkyards. You would be surprised at how much obscure knowedge they have from tearing down cars over the years.
