1965 R code rear-end ratio
I order my R-Code in January of 1965 and it came with a
3:50/1 9" N case
I had my dealer order a 4:57 set for a Econoline and had them
installed. The dealer bought back the stock gears in trade
for the Econoline set, had to pay for the install tho. Them was
the good ole days!
I wish I could find out what happened to that car or if
someone has it now..
Rangoon red 2 door hard top
Bench seat (Fabric)\
Blackwall Firestone tires and small Ford hubcaps
427 8V was $460.00 extra cost and came with 4 speed top loader

|Irelands child||About the only way to tell without a tag for sure is to pull the chunk out and count the gear teeth. That accomplishes a couple of other things besides determining the ratio - it also determines the axle spline count as well as which, if any Equa-loc or in a few cases, Detroit Locker plus the condition. The standard rear end if you didn't specify something else on your order sheet was a 3.50 (my local dealer and I had a fight about that problem on my '65 w/390 PI, I ordered an Equa-loc with 4.10s - they had to do a dealer install )|

turn it over
Without the tag It could have been changed, turn the drive shaft and count how many turns to have BOTH wheels turn one time, (locker) or how many times for ONE wheel to turn over TWO times (Non Locker )

1965 ford galaxie rear end?
I am looking at a rear end out of a 1965 ford galaxie with a 427 4 speed. the rear end doesn't have a tag. I was wanting to know what gear ratio options came in the 1965. Thanks for the help.
