You might also want to have a look at the <a href="http://hotrodders.com/kb/transmission-rearend/data.html" target="_blank">Transmission-Rearend:Technical Data section of the Hotrodders Knowledge Base</a>. The fifth resource on that page, entitled "Chart of Basic Rearend Measurements and Suspension Widths", may be exactly what you're looking for.

Try mid 70's early 80's GM mid-size cars

I don't know of a site but I can tell you from my experiences that I found a 60" wide axle in a '74 (?) Olds Omega (?) and that the axle width in a Pontiac Firebird (70's-80's) is approximately 62". I found this out by going to the salvage yard and measuring. I wanted the Firebird RE because it had disk brakes but it was too wide. The Olds had a 10-bolt posi and it worked fine.

Please pay attention to the dates of the threads..... this question was answered near 3 years ago.
