If you can find a rear out of a 63 Sprint (v8 Falcon), it's a direct bolt-in.
Same width, same mounting points. About the only difference is in some of the brake pieces, the shock mounting plates, and the u-bolts are wider to accomodate the larger diameter axle tubes. Plus, of course, you'd have to have the driveshaft adapted.
If you can get the complete set-up (u-bolts, shock mounts, and all) and have your driveshaft cut, then you can put it in rather easily in a few hours.

I know this, as that's what I did on my '61 Ranchero...
Mine: '61 chero, Clifford 200, E0 head (1.75/1.50, 1.6 rocker), 276 Cam, H-W 38/38, CI 6-to-2 header, T5, front disc, Shelby drop, 8" 3.0-posi, buckets/console, 15" TorqThrust's. Still building...
Son's "Parts Car": '61 chero, local built 200, C9 head (1.75/1.50, 1.5 rocker), 274 cam, 2V direct, Clifford 6-to-2 header, C4, B&M QuickSilver, stock rear and susp (for now).

Doesn't have to be a sprint just a V-8 Falcon 63.5 is the narrowest 8 inch built 56.25 flange to flange ( where the wheel bolts to where the wheel bolts ) , I believe a Maverick is 56.5 but never measured

Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't all the 63-1/2 v8 cars "Sprint" designations?
I thought they were.

65 Falcon has a diff center link than 63 or 64..
You may have to change out your a-frames depending on whether they are 4 or 3 bolt type.
Mustang a-frames will work. Springs are somewhat diff.

No there were other trims that had the V-8 260 , I parted out a 2 door post back in 80 it was a V-8 , The numbers can be found on the FCA website if you curious

1963-1/2 was the first year of the V8 and it was an available option on the: Futuras, Rancheros, and Station wagons. I heard a couple of the 62-1/2 Sport Futuras were factory V8 (more than likley built late in production) but have never seen one. Also something cool is they did make a few six cylinder powered Sprints! But the last two mentioned would be like finding the Holy Grail or the Fountain of Youth because they would be super rare. Hope this helps!
