^^Yes- measure the inner diameter (the friction surface), that will tell you the size.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ THis^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
It is either a 9" or 10" Unless a previous owner changed something.

The good news is at 10.4 on a 10", looking at the thickness in the pic, you have plenty of room 0.20 to have these turned and don't need to buy drums yet.

It appears to be a 10" drum, but you need to measure from the right place in order to get the correct number.

A photo of the spindle will settle that issue. Also, the 9" brakes use A1 and A4 bearings......The 10" brakes use A2 and A6 bearings.

Those drums are worth pawning off even if they need turning if they are 10's.

You'd have to get them mic'd and sell them as turntable as they are not that easy to find serviceable or new l. The come up for sale new from CHINA time to time but they seem to be limited runs.

Just for future reference the spindles pictured are 10 inch spindles, 9 inch have the upper ball joint stud boss twisted 90 degrees.

Be aware that the Wilwood hub is larger, and many factory wheels won't fit. There's several threads on the forum you can research that detail this. As long as you know what you're getting going in, you can plan for a satisfactory outcome. Several people have made the purchase and found out the hard way they needed new wheels.
Good luck!

You can save a bunch of bucks by using’73 - ‘76 a body upper control arms, spindles, lower ball joints , rotors, calibers .
