Excerpt from

The rear for 5 lug can be accomplished several ways. Redrilling the
axles and drums is the basic soution. have a machine shop weld p the 4 lug patttern and go to the 5 lug pattern of choice. Next is the boneyard aproach. Any 64-66 Mustang is the same drum to drum and perch to perch measured axle as a MII. Meaning that the axles will directly replace for length and fit. Find a 5 lug 64-66 Mustang or 63-67 falcon, or newer Versilles and get the axles, brake backing plates, drums and
shoes and you are done. NOW note if you do the bone yard approach to make good notes of what you have because n the future you will order brake parts for the donor car not the MII.

The Ranger setup is a much smarter approach. The Ranger uses a slightly wider shoe, so you'll get a little larger surface area.
