Help identify this rear end please

From under a '34 coupe 'glass car. Clearly leaf springs. Any idea what the axel is from?

For 10 bonus points.... Any idea who made the chassis? I know it's not much to go on, but the car is 6 hours away. Trying to make a 'go see it' decision.

Thanks

Ahhhh! Just for fun now - car just sold.

Looks to me like a 7.5 10 bolt from an S truck.

definitely common GM axle

if the little things at 5 and 7 o clock positions are just little fangs or teeth then its the 7.5 or 7.625 yep

s10 camaro caprice monte cutlass regal grand prix elky malibu and billions more cars over the years.

if they are not little teeth and instead are big 90 degree corners solid then its an 8.5"

its hard to tell with the shiny paint for sure but it appears they are tiny fangs, so is not 8.5" then

It's not the 8.5. The cover is oval shaped. The 8.5 has a round cover. This is the 7.5. The only question is what did it come out of. My guess is a S truck.

Look closely at the 5 and 7 o" clock areas, and you can see the "fangs"; it's the small 7.5/7.625 corporate GM rear end.

looks like a S-10 rear we put one in my dads 41 plymouth. If it were a G-body you would be able to see the mounts on top where the upper control arms went.
