You are going to have to post on a Ford forum or do a google search for 9" ford measurements. Your rear axle would be the same as a 1979 which is roughly 58" WMS.

I would recommend a 1957-1972 Ford pickup 9-inch. The housing width is 56" and it will finish up around 61" when assembled.

I did a Dana 61 (not a misprint) from an E350 van in my son's '83 Wide Track Cherokee. Would've been nice offroad if it hadn't been stolen.
