Ford production ran from 1957 to 1986, but aftermarket suppliers are manufacturing them still today. I don't know if all the housing ends are the same. Others may know.

I think what I would do is to make a template from thin cardboard like a shoe box and take it with me to the boneyard to find the correct backing plates and bolts/nuts.

Mustang and Fairlane rear ends in the '60s used the small bearings. The 8 inch rear ends also used small bearings and the brakes might interchange.

Housing in my car is small bearing. Uses seventies Torino rear plate/drums and brake pieces. I made shim seal from hard fiber gasket material.
