You have the old Hotchkiss style 8.2 inch ten bolt ring gear with bolt in axels. In 1965 GM switched over to a Salisbury style rear end made by Spicer that has been used ever since which also came in an 8.2 inch ring gear ten bolt but they are not interchangeable.

Be sure the person filling your order for a replacement gear set knows this so you do not attempt to install the wrong gear on the wrong carrier (differential).
