hate to ask this but would like to know if you was putting a 9 inch ford rearend in 69 camaro is there one you could use by just welding perches on ford rearend & what year would it come from i want a 12 bolt but they are a little steep thought i might get a 9 inch ford cheaper since my friend has a junkyard of fords & they are a tough setup

As always do a search, but that being said the early Mustangs and some of the Fairlanes are pretty close. I used a Fairlane in mine. I had the axles and drums drilled to Chevy so I could use a common spare and had a new set of spring perches welded on. I completely replaced all of the brake pieces. I paid $200 for the rear, from a friend, and probably have another $300 in it.

Anthon, it's been a long time... But I believe that a 69 Mustang's rear is the correct length! I remember picking one up for my 67 and never getting around to installing it! I loaned it to a fellow racer and it got destroyed. (Hill climbing) not failure.


Good luck

Seems like all the early Mustang and other Ford rears would be just as scarce and sought after as the GM stuff. Maybe even more since they're being put in GM cars. Just an opinion.

I think the 67 and 68 Mustangs will fit. If I remember correctly there is only like 1/4 or 1/2 inch diff in spring purch spacing that could be taken up by the slack in the bushings on each end of the springs. I read it in mag several years back. Be careful before you pull a rear from one of these 'stangs cause they also had 8.5 rears.

Anthony,
I found what you need today. I found a 9" Ford that had been in a Camaro with a nodular case, Daytona pinion housing, Moser axles, Traction Lock, and 3.73 or 3.89 gears.

I agree, rojo....have a good friend who is a blue oval guy (Mustangs) through and through, and he says it is near impossible to find a Ford 9" that isn't from a truck (so it doesn't need to be narrowed for car duty). At least that's the way it is around this area of the country.... He is currently building an 84 Mustang LX (original 4 cylinder car) with a Police Interceptor 460 big block and C6 auto. Also has a stroked 302 (377 I think???) ina 91 (I think) with a 290hp shot of N2O, transbrake etc, that runs in the low 6s in the 1/8 (that car is ungodly to ride in - never been thrown back in the seat in any car like that one!!!!!). Both these cars have 8.5" rears, which hold up just fine.

I can check the measurement the next time I'm in the shop, but I just pulled one from a Montego and it was the right width. Never measured the spring perches, but I will.
