    I replaced my damaged carrier my 62 GT with Auburn unit similar to this one. I paid around $340 for it a couple years back.

    Not sure if it fits a 66 Daytona.

      It looks like the 9 inch I’m looking at is 8 inches wider I am trying to figure out the best way of going apon this

          The GM will likely have a 5x5 bolt circle, not the 5x4.5 you need. You can have the 9" shortened. It is often done.

            I can purchase adapters or use universal wheels which I have a set that might work. And I have a feeling it may have slicks on it soon so I’m not too worried about the bolt pattern

                So nibbling along the edge of this I conclude my 54 commander has a 44 in it?

                  None of this talk here about a '66 Daytona with Flanged Axles has ANYTHING to do with a '54 Commander.
                  However anyone who has a Pre-1959 Studebaker V8, Commander or President, that is still Original, WILL have a Dana Model 44 Rear Axle.

                You have a Dana 27 with 3:07 gears, if you decide not to use it, I would like to have it. A Dana 44 from another Studebaker would be the easiest swap, it's much stronger than the Dana 27 you have and it has less parasitic drag than a Ford 9 inch, which is probably more than you need anyway. What gear ratio are you wanting to use?

                Best of luck,
