1965-'70 axle out of a Chevy full size (all models and styles so long as it is a B-body), Pontiac, Olds, Buick or Cadillac will be a direct bolt in. While you are looking keep your eyes open for a 12 bolt which is a direct fit but is bigger and thus stronger. The later models all used a triangulated four link instead of using a Panhard bar to locate the rear end under the car's center. The rear ends from later model cars will still fit, you just have to transfer the mounting brackets off of your car onto the new axle (cut very carefully with a grinder or plasma cutter and then reweld them in place) which isn't exactly a bolt in.
