    The 2.94 was std in the Imps for at least a couple of generations.

    D53 is the option code for a 3.23 ratio rear axle. That means the pinion shaft will turn 3.23 times for each full revolution of the ring gear.

    Thank you that’s what I thought because I was looking up gear ratios. It also came with sure grip :)

    I love my 2:76! Always have preferred tall rear gears for rolling on the highway. I strapped a 1976 Lincoln Versailles rear end to my '68 Mustang w a "baby C6" meant to bolt to the smaller 335 Cleveland block I ran in it which enabled me to run in 2nd gear up to 90 mph without red-lining that motor.

    THEN, I got my 1966 Chrysler New Yorker!

    I never looked back in regret.
