Welcome to the Team!

12 bolt out of a 1971 is a drop in. 1972 through 1976 will also fit but it will be a corporate 8.5" 10 Bolt rear instead of the Spicer. I had a Dana 60 under my 1985 Impala that I bought from Currie (a repurposed Ford one truck rear axle). Currie would be happy to build one for you as well as all it takes is money.

71-76 as Dave has said. The later you go, the higher (lower numerically) the gears will be. That will be good for your highway revs, especially if you are running short low low tires.

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.
