I have a '72 Cougar that I'm parting out. What underchassis parts from this car can be used on a '68 Torino GT Fastback? I want to use the Disc Brake booster and the rearend. Is the lenght of the differential same from flange-to-flange? Also, will the steering box(or whole steering column) of the cougar fit the Torino? How about the front disc brakes and other steering components? Thanks in advance for the valuable help.

Sorry this was overlooked.

The disc brake booster should fit, even though the Cougar is a Bendix and the Torino used a Midland booster. The axle will swap over; the widths aren't exactly the same, but you have a pretty good amount of wheelwell rooms. The steering box won't swap, it's a different system, but I believe the disc brakes will as long as you swap the spindles.
