It's not. Flat spot on the bottom of the housing and chunk are even more discernable in the last photo showing the differential from the front. Definitely an 8" Ford unit. Why in god's name would anyone go THAT route??? Rhetorical.
Nice hatchet and splice job on the emergency brake cables too.
Way too much money for something that you have to bring home and work on. JMHO.
An odd choice for sure. Way to easy to find an 8.75 to be dinking around like that. Still is nice enough to pull close to his number in this market. I don’t like the exhaust work one but. From front to back. Base car with added A87 b pillar trim. Rough tag may mean this started as a really rusty car.
