Dana 60 rear help??

I found a rear end at my local junk yard and everything about it checks out to be a Dana 60. However on the bottom right webbing has "80" casted into it instead of 60. I scraped it really good so no I'm not mistaking this. The tubes are to rusty to ready any BOM numbers but the tag is still bolted on the back and the 1st 2 numbers are 60. It's got 4.10's with those real course 16 spline axles. I haven't had the cover off so I don't know what it's guts look like yet. The tubes are also 3" dia. instead of 3.125". It's a full floater as well. It came out of a 74 F-250. Can anybody make sense of this thing? I won't be using it for off roading, it will be for muscle car application.

74 f-250 shouldn't have a D-80 in it. get me the bom number off the axle tube itself, along the axle tube looking at the cover about 2/3" off the center section will be a 610XXX-X number stamped into the axle tube.

But it sounds most definitely like a D-60, if it's for a car or jeep the 3" axles are all you want
