You have a Chevy 12 bolt in a Mustang? That's different. The '57 9 inch would only have a tag with the gear ratio on it. There wouldn't be anything else on there. Must be later than '57.

Must be a first gen Camaro 12 bolt. I know several people who have bolted early Mustang 9 inch Fords in their first gen Camaros. Strange how things turn around. The price on those Camaro rear ends has gone through the roof.
