It would atleast be a 1972 rear.

We’ll need some more info on the vehicle it came from to help you.

Check out the Novasourse link you could probably figure it out for yourself.

Thanks for the tip. :yes:
I checked at Novasource first. It is not detailed enough. The closest I can tell from research is that it came from a 1975 X Body. It is currently under a '75 Nova.

I'll throw this is that the older these vehicle get, the more things that can be changed.

Codes on whatever were there originally but who's to say down the road, things might have been changed or swapped out. This could have been the day after the customer got it or later on down the road.

Not to tell you your business, but do the work and the math.

Thanks for the help.
I have no idea what this rear end was in originally. It may very well be the one this 75 came with. There is rust on the vin tag making it very difficult to read. I'll keep researching.

gear ratio

Maybe the answer to your question could be as simple as calculating the ratio. I am sure there are many articles on the internet. It is easily calculated by rotating the wheels a certain number of times while observing the number of rotations of the driveshaft. Good Luck.
