Buick Grand National, GNX, T-types would be a good place to start looking.

What kind of power are you making? Flywheel numbers are fine or just list the motor specs.

IMO, you'd be better off spending the cash to upgrade to an 8.5" 10-bolt housing and fill it with aftermarket parts to hold a performance engine than trying to find a rare-when-new rear end that is now 25 years old and going to need refurbishing anyway.

Moser will sell you a complete rear end assembly that will bolt right in. Either a Ford 9" or a 12 bolt with gear and posi of your choice.
Way better than a wimpy 7.5" rear.

The shaft has been worn by the spider gears. You almost have to drive it out. The only other option is get a good grip on it and pull it out. Maybe you can get a good stout punch in the bolt hole and use a large screwdriver against the housing to pry the shaft out.

GOOD LUCK
