Hello from the UK bowtier
I am in the middle of purchasing a 62 V8 Panel and I would like too know what the rear end ratio is for these please if anyone knows that would be great. Also if as I suspect they are a numerically high ratio is there a ratio on a later vehicle that would be compatible with a better cruising ratio.

Many thanks I have only just joined this forum as I found the link from the Tri Five part of the forum as I am also restoring a 55 4 door 210 sedan.

Regards John

Welcome to the site John, in reqards to your question, rear axle ratio if it has not been changed most common were either 3.73 and or 4.11, if you look at your axle top right side of the axle tube from the rear there will be a series or numbers and letters, that will tell us what we need to translate the actual ratio.

I guess a few oher questions are in order, is your panel running six or eight lug rims and are you specificly decided on rear axle change or would you consider a transmission change with an overdrive....?
