    Hello!
    Looking at buying a 73’ dart swinger as a donor car for my 69’ GT.

    We’re doing a /6 to V8 swap and this seems to be a great candidate.

    Can anyone help verify this is an 8.25 rear end? It looks like it to me but I’m doubting my self.

    The car is a couple hours away so I’d really appreciate the help!

    Thanks!!!

    Yes, a little hard to see but it does look like an 8 1/4

        10 bolt holes I believe and if you look at the 8.25 cover gasket it's pretty much a circle (slightly flat at the top and bottom). Your pic does look like an 8.25 rear end.

        The 7 1/4 will have 9 bolts and an 8 1/4 has 10 bolt cover. Kim
