It's from a '67 or later Ford, it fits 65-66 Mustangs, but is a little wide. Open differential, highway gears, 28-spline, small bearing, drum brakes, needs new center gasket and axle seals. A friend said it's only worth about 50-75 dollars. What do you think?

Should be worth more than that as I see bare housing selling for more on eBay.

Around here they go for more like $200 for the housing core.

As a core, the centers usually go for 75 - 100 on ebay, housings go for the same.

Does it come with the axles?

it depends. first we need to know what it came out of. you need to measure center to center on the spring perches.
42" center to center would be from a 66-69 fairlane/comet/torino/montego/cyclone/etc.

43"CTC would be from a 67-70 mustang/cougar.

a rough measurement backing plate to backing plate of 52 inches is perfect for 65-66 mustangs, 53.5-54 is from 67-70 mustang or cougar, 56 is 71-73 mustang/cougar but these all have small/tapered tubes. big fords use straight and big axle tubes and would only be worth 100.00 bucks max as a core unless it came from a 57-59 ford or 57-60 t-bird these differential housings are 52" BPtoBP and with the perches relocated fit perfect in 65-66 mustangs or 67-70 with more axle clearance.

both would be worth about the same just the mustang/cougar unit is typically more saleable.

the bare housing alone would sell between 200-250. axles are no big deal as they are the same as 8inch axles. but still worth 50-100 bucks to someone who needs one. standard 9 inch pumpkin core 50-100 bucks.

typically i get 350-450 for a complete core 9 inch for a 67-70 mustang/cougar. closer to the 350 range for a fairlane unit as you don't sell as many.

so if your buddy wants to sell it for 50 or 75 bucks then buy it. if he wants to buy it from you for that little he better be a good buddy who's done you a bunch of favors.

I bought a similar unit from a '68 GT in running condition a couple of years ago for $350 so with the work it needs I'd say $250 would be fair. This is in Northern CA, so not sure how much that applies to where you are though...

If buying, hope you bought it already. If selling quadruple the price and you shouldn't have any trouble selling it.

Thanks for all the replies.
Yeah, it's my old one. I just wanted to know how much I should expect it to sell for.

OK, I measured it today. The perches are 43 CTC and the length of the housing is 53.5 BPTBP. So, it must be from a 67-70 Mustang or Cougar. Should be worth more than 75 dollars. It's going on fleaBay tonight!

Hey,

I also have a question in regards to retrofitting a ford 9 inch housing in my 65 coupe. According to many sites out there, (http://kevinstang.com/Ninecase.htm and some others)the housing distance from flange to flange should be 52.25 inches for it to work; the housing I bought apparently came from a late 50's Ford (the centre has a flat centre band and has two dimples)and measures 52.875, would this work? Also can I use my stock Ford 8" axles and backing plates with this housing? I am going to be running American Racing Torq Thrust II 17X8 with 4.75 back spacing on 235/45/17 in the rear.
