    Because it’s next to impossible to find drums

    Ford maverick.
    It’s even the correct bolt pattern.

    A 1973-1976 Mopar A Body {Duster-Dart} 8 1/4 rear. 4 1/2 bolt pattern and supposedly the right width. Make sure it's not the little 7 1/4.

    My first car was a 1968 Cougar XR7, 302-2bbl and a C4 auto. It had the 8 inch rearend. I went through 6 or 7 pumpkins, So in my book I will never use an 8 inch under anything!

    I had a S10 10 bolt in my 34 Plymouth, worked great!

    There is a conversion to model A drums on ply33.com if you want to keep it original. You just need the puller tool to pull them off. The real trick is to know how to adjust early brakes.
    Apparently changing to the later 60’s mopar 8 3/4 gets you the drums and a better ratio for highway driving Also you can also go to rear hand brake.
    O yeah and on the mopar rear you can use the factory leaf perches. It is literally bolt in.

    My brother used a 69 Nova 12 bolt in his 34 Plymouth. Been in there since 1970.
