Found a 1965 8" 5-lug for sale locally. How easy of a swap would this be? Don't want to get into cutting and welding.

You'd need to do cutting and welding.

I think those pretty much bolt in basically. They are about an inch wider I believe, so may need to pay attention to wheel offset.

The attachment from rear axle to leaf spring is still diffrent between both cars. To get rid of the rupper mounts around the leaf spring in the attachment area of the rear axle body, I weldet on some steel plates with holes drilled to be able to position the rear axle on the center bolt of the leaf spring...
But still welding is requiered...
