Should be a 7.5" rear end. Look at the cover plate. If the top & bottom are flat, and the sides are curved, it's a 7.5". The 8.8" has 4 flat sides. It also may be wider than a Mustang rear end. Early '85 Cougars & T-birds used a Mustang-width housing, but longer axles and offset brake drums. In mid-'85, they went to a rear end with a wider housing & flat-sided drums. It probably has 2.73 gears if it's the original.
