Thanks DaveIf this is a "P" case then $1,500 to $2,000 to a some doctor or banker restoring an early C! Corvette. If it is a standard case with an aftermarket posi it would depend upon the condition because the aftermarket posi's can not be rebuilt with new clutches you have to buy another posi to replace it.
The problem with this rear end is that the rear end was designed in 1943 to be placed behind a 216 cube six cylinder. It will not handle a lot of torque, because it was never designed to handle it.
No what I am saying is the early Corvettes where a full size Chevy frame and suspension with the back seat area of the frame removed. They think they have a hot rod and are willing to spend through the nose to get those old original parts that were rarely installed in Corvettes because they (rich guys with deep pockets) think that all Corvettes had them. It also halves the torque load on a single drive axle with more powerful motorThanks Dave
It has a P with a date code of D284, so I think it is what they call the thicker case, all original I think, except maybe the bearings. Is there a way to identify original bearing.
So what you are saying is no one would want this thing except someone with a early corvette.
The same pumpkin fits all of 1955-'64 full size B-body, 1953-'63 Corvette and the 1962-'64 Chevy II. The housing and axles differed to fit the track of the vehicle and the housings differed by width and bracketry to mount the rear and shocks.This is a 64 case, so if my research is correct that would be a pass car an no corvette. Is that correct? And a a result worth much less?
