    I have a 8.5 rear end off a 1972 Olds. Was told it has 3.08 non posi gears when i recieved it. Was going to clean and install a posi and swap it with my 8.2, but I see no means to do so in the near future and don't want to trip over it any longer. Stored in shed or garage for past 8 years. Selling for $100 firm. will NOT ship. You come and get it. I'm in Southeast Michigan.

    You shouldn't have ANY problem getting rid of that. If I were in the area,I would grab it.

    Does that have the bolt in axles? If so I am interested.

    Please let me know.

    You should post a picture of the rear cover, and any identifying letters stamped into the axle tube. If it is in fact a rear from a 1972 Olds Cutlass/442, it will be bolt in axle.

    Ok so i finally got the rear end out to take a couple of pics. The # cast into the pumpkin appears to read 407296 or 98. Didnt notice anything on the tubes. Did see OE cast on it also. casting2.jpg axle 3 jpg.jpg

    The best picture is the one that you left off. The rear cover picture. Look at the 4 holes in the yoke, are they threaded?

    That is an 8.5" 10-bolt,out of a 71-72 Cutlass/442,built in Lansing,Michigan. All of the other plants that built those cars used the same Buick style 8.5". ALL of the guts and parts are the same.
    I'm interested,if I can find a way to get it here.

    Thanks for clarifying Brian...

    Ok so now I want to be fair as to who was/is first in order of wanting it. I believe Brian's first post stated he was interested. Followed by Kevin, Marty, Doug.
