The rear end from a 70 Challenger fits right in. I did that swap on a 62 Newport I had a few years ago.
If I remember right, the leaf spring perches were just 1/8 inch off compared to the 62, not enough to bother with moving them...

I'm tired of fighting with the tapered rear axle assembly, as well as the "finiky" brakes in my 62. Does anyone know which Mopar rear axle will swap in. I'm probably going to install all wheel disc brakes in the near future as well. Comments appreciated. Thanks, Charlie in Ottawa.
