Ford 8 Inch which drum brakes? (41 ford)

Hello there I am working on fixing my Dad's 41 ford. The brakes were seized its been parked for years so after some beating I finally got the drum off. Pretty positive its an 8 inch and am trying to figure out which drum I need to get maybe someone can identify?

Drum is 12.5 inches total width. 10 1/2 inch pads

Pictures maybe can help?

rear

the pic of the back view looks like mine.. 8".. measure between the backing plates... mine is 54" and it came out of a 67 mustang.. ck the axle housing too... if they taper down it'll be a 64 to 66.. they changed to the same size tube in 67.. now there may be some cross over in the 67 yr.. but u'd be mustang, mavrick, falcon...

Look on the frt where the center section bolts to the housing , you may get lucky & the factory tag will still be there, then you can decode. 8" ford were used up until '79 , mustang II, granada, pinto , bobcat, monarch..
