Here we have an early bone stock N C4AW-B unmarked "N CASE" which was consistent with the manufacture on the early Nodular rears like this one which is dated 8 K 15 ( October 15th 1968 ). The early 9" chunks did not have the visible N on the outside of the case although they did have the N stamping on both caps as well as on the case itself in the part number. This 31 Spline carrier is set up with FORD 3.00:1 gears. This unit has a 4 pinion posi trac limited slip carrier which was the best option for the Ford Performance cars to assure traction. This carrier when accelerated forces clutches to lock which would pull both wheels adding traction during the high demand time of need on their 9 inch rears. In 1968 Ford engineers re-tooled the rear end cases for their high performance factory race cars with a new stronger double ribbed design and used a purer grade of steel. This was referred to as the "N" case which was made of nodular steel and offered a high nickel content. This Nodular rear assured owners extra durability and strength for their new powerhouses like the 428 Cobra Jet and eventually the Boss 429 as well as the Boss 302 and it became a must for all the factory race cars!This rear comes to us in great used condition with the extra durable clean FORD gears that are without any signs of excessive wear or chips on the teeth. The bearings spin freely and are without excessive play or noise. We cleaned and detailed this unit so its ready to install and enjoy. Easily added as part of a bolt-in assembly, we are sure that you would enjoy the benefits of the desirable early dated 9 Inch Rear. This is a good clean piece that could be a finishing touch to your 68 1/2 Cobra Jet Mustang, Torino Cobra or the like. This bullit proof rear chunk was set up by Ford so you know its right and having that guarantee with the rarity of this very hard to find unit it a find. This chunk will install in almost any Ford V8 vehicle with a 9 inch rear that has the 31 spline axles, such as a 68 Shelby, Boss Mustang, Mach 1, Cobra, Torino, Fairlane, Falcon, Cyclone, Spoiler, Ranchero, Cougar, Eliminator, Montego, Maverick, Comet,or even a 4 wheel drive Ford 150 Pickup.This rear, commonly used in the above vehicles, will give it the punch and go that you need. There are no signs of damage or repair it just plain ready to go to work. Low production, High Demand make these extremely difficult to locate, and this one can be yours!
