Change for a 8" to a 9" rear end

I have a 65 mustang with a 8" rear end, I would like to change it to a 9'' without the expense of a new one. Is there a donor vehicle with that will be a direct swap? Maybe one with disc brakes so i can kill to birds with one stone. Thanks

Just to satisfy my curiousity.... What is your intent with the 9"? A good rebuild on the 8" with a posi unit and gears would be easier then trying to find a 9" to fit... If it's a driver that would be my suggestion. Less of a tear up on the car also...
