Is there a axle tag present? The raio will be on there. Failing that look on your dorr data plate for axle type. Once you got that info you should be able to find the ratio

+1, either the door data plate or the tag on the axle.

Here are the axle codes for the door data plate:

Here are how the axle tag codes are formatted:

"955C" would have been on the paper tag wrapped around the axle tube. It was for Ford assembly personnel to quickly ID the needed axle assembly for the car.

HemiKiller is correct. My build sheet reads 951B for an open 2:75. As others have indicated the Original door tag will show and the rear should have the attached tag. This is assuming all of these are still from the original car.

Thanks for that, I think mine is 981A, and I couldn't associate it with codes or part numbers.

Mine is 955A. It's a 3.25:1 open dif.
I never even looked at that before, now I've learned something new today!

You still have paper tags on your rear axles? One hardly ever sees them after this many years!

Let me check your shorts!

 I think he means the paper tag that would  have been on it and now is referring to the build sheet.

If interested I found a person who can reproduce them.  He has the ability to make them very very close to the originals with type font, spacing and block type following each number set.
