    I am wondering if the Dana 60 that came with the original hemi darts and barracudas were a 5 x 4 inch small bolt pattern.

    I have a model car of a gratiot auto supply 1968 hemi dart and I think it has an 8 3/4.

    I could be totally wrong and the hemi darts and hemi barracudas came with a 8 3/4 from the factory.

    In any case, many of these hemi darts and barracudas have dana 60 rear differentials, was there ever any record of people using the dana 60's with 5 x 4 inch small bolt pattern axles?

        No such thing anyway, a factory 68 Hemi Dart, or Barracuda with a 4 inch wheel bolt pattern.

          Sticks were Dana 60’s. Autos were 8 3/4. Correct but I believe the Dana 60’s were all 4.5 bolt pattern. Were the 8 3/4 rearends all 4.5 as well?

          The factory Dana 60 rears had 4.5" bolt pattern . They were the only cars built by Mopar to have 2 different bolt pattern wheels .

            You're right Jad . They used some goofy offset steel wheels to get it in . The rims do not appear in any other vehicle anywhere . super rare and super expensive.

            And to think that the original owners just took them off and tossed them to the side or even threw them away!
