    I have the ability to pick up a complete with brakes A-body 8.75 with 4.10 gears and no sure grip.

    What would a good price be on it?

      if those gears work for you, id expect anything under 1000 an acceptable price

      (with a sure grip, 1200)

          Almost forgot, make sure the bolt pattern work for you, because if you would have to get 2 new wheels to make it work, that'll get into the hundreds too

                Yea its a bit less than that. Figured it's better to buy when deap presents itself than to buy when you "need" one and have to pay a lot more.

                              I bought a axle to axle complete unit about 8 years ago for $250.00. Those days are gone. The housing will probably be 450-500. If it's complete, maybe 800-1000. Some won't pay it, some will. But if you spec out a fab'd rear from anyone that grand ain't looking so bad....

                                I had it listed for about 6 months on various sites.

                                It finally sold at the Carlisle swap meet - on the last day.

                                  Or in parts it's a grand.

                                  Unless one gets good deals on each piece.
                                  Possible but not likely

                                    I was thinking more like 200, but I'm stuck back in the day, so 450 sounds good with inflation over those years. lol

                                      There were several bare A-body housings for sale at Rockingham this weekend for $450 but I’m not sure if any of them sold. There was one there that included the axles, backing plates and drums for $550 and that one didn’t sell either.

                                      I wouldn't give 500 for one. By the time you pay somebody's gold plated 1000 dollar price tag, you couldda found a C body 8 3/4 and cut it to fit, or a Ford 9" or 8.8, or even a Mopar 8 1/4. If they want more than 500, let um hold it.
