Are front wheels hubs the same on all '56 and up cars? I don't have a parts book handy, but I was told that they are all the same--didn't matter if the car was a 6 or and 8 and that even the disc brake hubs weren't different.

Thanks in advance to those who know this stuff!!

According to parts books different part numbers for 56-63 , 64-66 and disc brake models

But within those periods no difference between 6 and 8 cyl models, correct?

listed as follows with no reference to model

#1539455 56-63 all
#1562461 64s,64v, 65-66 all
The disc brake version appears to be serviced as a hub-disc unit.

Even though the disc appears different...the basic hub is the same, just machined on the opposite..or back side for the disc. The Avanti disc's are put on the back side rather than the "normal" front side of the hub.
Either can be made to work just by machining the other side of the hub from what you have.
