I think they're cool looking but it would sure set you back having to buy 11 new tires (including spare), 11 tubes, 11 metal stems and 11 flaps.:eek:

Those rear ends look interesting. Are they the special banjo style AA style? The front one has a through shaft running to the back differential. JS sez that these were used from Nov. 1928 to the introduction of the bevel gear 30-31 style inlate 29. Does this truck use the 1929 6 hole wheels? Wick: Some detailed photos of the rear ends would be good. Great find. Never seen one of these. Neil Wilson should get in on this.

Both frames look like car frames,both the main and add-on section.Both have shocks,not a truck item.Did any AA's have transverse springs? I don't believe so,but they may have,I'm not an AA person.I have no idea who made the pass through rear,but there were some pretty crafty folks around during the war.I had a little tractor made from a T that everybody swore had to be made by a factory,but it was home made by a blacksmith here in town.

Yep, you saw the same thing I did. Looks homemade (--or Blacksmith made) and I too would like to know what they did. I got to thinking that if they took two differential housings (banjos) and split them from top to bottom, then the two front halves could be welded together to make that type of a rear end. The two axle housings would support the differential and the bolts would likely hold everything in alignment. The ingenuity that was out there back then is remarkable. Wish more of it was around these days!! :rolleyes:

I think you guys are right. This is a homemade rig, althought there was a banjo style AA rear end that looked like a car rear end, only larger. These are car rear ends.

I saw one in Colorado several years ago that had all Ford part numbers, and was supposedly use in the building of Hoover Dam.
