    Thanks everyone. Since it is a convertible (which began life as a 6 cylinder) I was suspicious, now I know the 27 is correct.
    Yes, Bob, I'll see you in Palm Springs. Everyone else in the area is also invited!!

    AFAIK, in these years, with the station wagon perhaps the exception, the 259 got the 27 and 289 got the 44.

    My 1962 Lark 4 door with V8 Overdrive has a 27. I asked about updating to a 44 and the replies I got here on the forum is the length of the housing is different and you would need to use a different drive shaft. Hope this helps.

    Howard, are you going to the zone meet in Palm Springs? I will be there and hope to see you again

    As noted, both my 59 and 60 V-8 wagons had the 44 series axle assembly. The 59, with a posi unit in it.
    Don't know about the rest of the lineup.

    For 1960 Lark models, a type 44 rear end was standard only in V-8 station wagons.

    started a topic Rear Axle: Does a '60 Lark V8 come with a Dana 44

    Does a '60 Lark V8 come with a Dana 44

    I'm working on a friend's '60 Lark V8 convertible. I decided to see what the rear end ratio was and I was surprised to find a Dana 27 rear axle (the ratio is 3.54). Was a Dana 27 standard with an option to upgrade to a Dana 44? Thanks.
Working...
