Default 1933-1936 Rear End Widths

Can anyone tell me what the overall width is, bolt flange to bolt flange, on 33-34 and also 35-36 rear banjo rear ends? Any input would be appreciated.



Thanks Dan

thats a good article posted by jseery, every jalopy builder should have it bookmarked. mr will you havnt given us a clue what you are building yet, but on my 34 coupe i went for the 35 to 41 housing width. several reasons, its a little stronger, parts are more common, the 3/4" per side wider works out well with my 750x16's on the rear. my car is a kids jalopy from the 50's, not a restoration. a work in progress i think they call it! happy motoring, skip

I have a 33 coupe and also have a 36 banjo I want to use. I was concerned with the width of the later rear and fender clearance should I decided to run fenders.
I know I can make up the difference with wheel offset just wanted to verify before i ventured there.
Your coupe looks great.

Thanks Dan
