    I need to swap axles and may have found a suitable replacement but I cannot take measurements on my car right now. Does anyone know what size (axle width) from drum to drum will fit my 1950 ford coupe? Thanks!

    Oh, and is a versailles rear end 58" or 60"?

    Shoebox is 47" across wheel mounting flanges.

    Shoebox is 57 inches between wheel mounting surfaces not 47". A Maverick 8 in. 5 -lug is a near perfect fit. So is 57-59 Ford 9".
