rear end swap


  Hi everyone I've got a 65 Acadian Beaumont with a cracked 10 bolt diff can anyone tell me if a 10 bolt diff out of an Acadian Invader will bolt in or what 12 bolt will bolt in.  Thanks

Your Acadian Beaumont is a Chevelle type Beaumont I am assuming since the 65's never said Beaumont on them if they are Nova style. Easy way to tell is Beaumont style Acadians in 65 use coil springs, Canso style Acadians use leaf springs.

If that's the case, the center section (removable parts) are all that interchange between the 2 types of Acadians. A complete bolt in diff would have to come from a Chevelle, 65 or 66. 67 would fit but the coil springs are different and you would have to use 67 coils on a 67 rear end.
