ford 9

big lincoln- Merc 9 3/8 used 5 X 5 patterns, ford explorer use std ford 5 on 4.5 patterns are a bolt on on some of the ford housing, also check out 80's lincoln town cars with the std ford 5 on 4.5, also some jeeps rotors use ford pass pattern. some of the old kits used Cad Eldo rear calipers which include a lever park brake on the rotor. Mustang II kits offer ford or gm bolt pattern rotors, I don't know if you can use ford pattern front rotors so you don't have different front to rear if you don't want to have the rear axles-rotors drilled to match the front.

Rear rotors from a 78 to 85 Toronado have a 4.75" bolt pattern and match up for thickness to the GM metric calipers.
