Ford 9 in Rear End

We decided we wanted to install a Ford 9 inch rear end (325 gears) in our car instead of the 8 inch (279 gears) rear end. We think it improved the lower end with our 289 Hipo.

You'll love it! I used that config before in a '68 convert. Good response.

these are rated at 400 hp - just change out the pumkin, store the 8" if you plan to sell.

I profess to know nothing and only wish to associate with those who do!
