Hi,
I am looking for a 12 bolt rearend for my 70 hardtop. I found a 71 or 72 wagon in a farmers field, but it is buried under a bunch of junk. Before attempting to get at the rearend, Just wondering what the chances are of finding a 12 bolt in a wagon. If it is a good possibility of finding a 12 bolt under this wagon, I will attempt to get at it. Also, is there any difference in width or mounting brackets between a wagon or hardtop rearend.

Thanks
Mike

It probably has a 10 bolt, my 72 did. The mounting is the same.

You might get lucky and find a 12 bolt with the big back brakes

It is worth a look. It should bolt in your car with no problems.

Thanks for the information. I will need to check it out when I have some free time. But first I need to check out a big block 73 chevelle that another farmer has down the road, just found this one today.

Thanks
Mike

Mike,
ALL 68-72 Chevelle, wagon, Elky and Monte Carlo rears are 100% interchangeable. Although, I have NEVER seen anything other than the regular 9in rear brake drums on them.
In 72, which was the last year for this generation of Chevelle, I ordered a 72 9 passenger wagon with BB, 4sp, 12bolt posi, CI hood, full pwr and air. Today, the 12bolt posi from that wagon is bolted under my son's 71 SS454 clone.

Mike, if your looking at the 73 thinking to get the rear out of it, don't. The rear from a 73 will not fit your 70.

I am only looking at the 73 to get the Big Block for my Nova. I already know that they have nothing much in common with the 70.

Thanks
Mike
