After all the years these Mopars still invite spirited discussion. :)
Reading through all the messages it is the general consensus that swapping in 1965 axles into 1962-1964 housings is not a bolt-on operation. There are two dissenters who say it could be done. How easily is not clear.
To look at this another way, if swapping in 1965 axles into 1962-1964 housings was a simple swap, then I would assume over the nearly 50 years since these cars were built there would be numerous examples of such a swap in magazines and on webpages. That's not the case I am aware of.
What you do find in magazines and on webpages are the swaps of later (i.e., 1965 up) b-body rear ends into 1962 - 1965 b-body cars as well as the mods to the brake drums.
