  • GTO 1969 Diff?

    I have a diff in my car with the following numbers,
    Stamped on the axle tube - 327 XH
    Cast into the housing - 293 then below 9795084
    All the checking that I can do on line tells me that this is a diff out of a 1969 GTO.
    Can anyone confirm this or point me in the right direction?.

    XH in my book comes back to3:55 '72 Lemans Locking, '65&'66 Tempest Non-Locking, and Tempest '69-'71 Locking.

      I got the 3:55 as well but keep finding the casting number 9795084 related back to a 1969 GTO any ideas?
      Below is a extract from another forum, GTO forum and is the answer given when somebody has asked about the diff in his GTO.
      As I'm new to this it's a bit confusing, for a start the diff is in my 69 4 door hardtop Lemans but being in Australia it could have been cannibalized from another car.

      That rear end was only available on the 69 RAIV in 3 gears,
      3.55 with both the open carrier (WH) and Posi trac (XH)
      the 3.90 (XK) and the 4.33 (XM) was only available in Posi trac, the following year Pontiac offered the Chevy 12 bolt for the GTO 455HO.
