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!!
