    I have a 9 inch disc rearend out of a Lincoln that I would like to trade for a 9 inch for a 65 or 66 Mustang. I think that the gears in this rear are 3.00 but I am not sure. The rearend does not need to have gears, housing and axles would be fine. I am located in California Bay Area, San Jose.

    Would you be willing to part with it for cash? Or are you looking to specifically trade?

    I would rather trade for a 9 inch that I could put into the car as a replacement for the Lincoln rear. If I sell it I would need to buy another 9 inch
    and that will be a little expensive ( currie housing and axles $700+). I put 17inch TTII on the car and with the car lowered it is too close. I know that the Lincoln rear is about 1/2 inch wider than stock on both sides for 65 and 66 cars so I would like to change to the stock width. The rear discs are nice but I could live without them.

    I have a 9" that came out of a 66. What is the backspace on the 17's you have?

    The backspacing on the wheels is 4.75. Is the 9 inch that you have the stock width for 65 and 66?

    I think it is actually a little wider...the leaf spring mounts are the same but the housing is a little wider....I got it off of a parts car and may not use it....I think it had late model wheel with more backspacing and that is why they fit.
