Ok, I had to google, but at least I was on the right track. Dusenburg. I was chatting with a fellow gearhead here at the computer and we thought old, twenties or thirties would be lubing chassis at only 80 miles and the first that came to our mind was Cord, but Duesenberg 1935 SJ model is the winner, and so am I!

Damn I thought that would keep you busy for at least a couple of hours!!

1929 Duesenberg model J is correct. All 470 of them from 1929 to '37 had them.

I agree that the vettes still use this....But I was wondering, didn't the the 60's impala use this setup? I know that they had an "x" styled frame with the driveshaft (tube?) going through the middle...

Am I imagining this?

actually the 58 thru 64 chevies use 2 driveshafts. the front one is stationary, held in place in the rear by a support and bearing through the X. the rear driveshaft moves up and down. 3 u-joints...

It is not a trick question. We are talking full on torque tube. With a rear axle, torque tube to transmission like a 40 Ford.

Joe, you are closest.

How about this, it is also the last GM car with a starter button under the gas pedal.

holy cows brian, would those be the late 40s/early50s GMC/chevy pick ups, as i recall they had those starter buttons on the floor and the torque tube???

just for your info, the early tempests and the newer vettes employ the torque tube design with the tranny at the back...
