Doesn't look like any production, factory installed axle to me, but I'm too young to know for certain...

It was a factory axle on a very popular car. Then became very popular in the hot rod crowd.

If I remember correctly, the little V8-60 Fords starting in 1937 had a tube axle while the 85hp models had an I-beam.

Is that what you are looking for?

Gosh damn it John, I said youngsters only can answer this one! Yep, 37-39 Ford V8 Sixty cars had this tube axle the rest had the I beam.

You better come up with a good one now!

You two just gave me a belly laugh. Dad is in his 80s, didn't know. I was ready to take my guess which may, or may not, have been correct. Or wrong. But that just now was worth waiting for.

Age is a state of mind. Or decay. All I know is ole forty grit is a kid at heart and I'm so glad I don't have to generate a new Q.

Sock it to us, John!

Doggone it Brian. That was 13 posts ago. At my age, I am lucky to remember the question. There is no way you can expect me to remember who is allowed to answer it.

Actually, it is so rare I know one of the trivia questions, I could not wait to answer.......

Which Oldsmobile was the last to have a flathead engine?

Even though that is true, it is irrelevant to the question.

Trivia Thread emergency interruption!

(Air raid siren sounding)

This was posted on a Facebook page I follow (AmeriCar The Beautiful). After a lot of people guessing, I have searched and searched and can't figure it out.

I posted the following there and thus am posting the same thing here so maybe I will be able to sleep tonight!

Ok, everyone has been wrong with what kind of car this is, it is NOT a Ford for goodness sakes. I will not be able to go to sleep tonight until I know what it is! I am a serious car nut, know this era pretty well and can't find what this is! WE MUST FIND OUT so I can sleep tonight! There are a couple of give aways to find and I haven't been able to! One, just to be clear it is NOT a Ford, right off the bat it has parallel leafs in the rear, Ford has a transverse leaf. The stamping around the louvres on the hood side is a stand out, you see it on many cars that aren't this one so it's not a give away. The hole in the rocker panel, that is a VERY unique point that I think I have seen but can't place the car, but that is a seriously unique thing. The short sedan is rare, others had them like the Model A Victoria but they weren't as short as this leaving room for a trunk in the back. This baby is driving me nuts!



PLEASE HELP ME!

Brian
