They are both 10 bolt rearends but I think the ring gear on the car is smaller. I think one is 7.5 or so and yours is 8.5.

The axles from the 1976 are most likely a GM Corporate 12 BOlt in the rear and a Dana 44 in the front. The Dana 44 is marginally stronger than the 10 Bolt front due to the extra webbing cast into the housing. Those axles MIGHT be in a vehicle with fulltime four-wheel drive, in that case you'll need a set of hubs for the front axle. I think $300 is a pretty good deal for them if they're complete and in working order.
