Buick Riviera 70 Rear end?

Hi
I have Buick Riviera 70 and I don't know what rear end it has?
Is it a GM 10 bolt?

I don't think so. The shape doesn't look quite right, and there's no fangs at 5:00 & 7:00. I bet it's one of those odd-ball big-car rear ends GM was so fond of in the early '70s. The 7.5" was not even made until 1975 or so.

Looks like an 8.2" Buick or Pontiac rear axle.

Not an 8.2" B/P, no scallops at 3:00 & 9:00.
