Re: '47 Axles

They aren't worth a whole lot unless you are in severe need of one or the other then the price seems to get higher than normal.

The front axle might have more market and be worth hanging on to if you have a place to stash it that doesn't cost to keep it there. Sometimes guys have one that is damaged or worn so bad it isn't worth fixing and look for another one.

On the rear, you would have to find someone with a stock truck with a worn out rearend and then if you didn't drive the truck before pulling the rear you have to worry about it being worn out. If you were a lot closer I'd buy it to use part of it on an OT project that I want the Huck brakes for so I can run early Chevy 18 inch wire wheels .

My ongoing truck projects:
48 Chev 3100 that will run a 292 Six.
71 GMC 2500 that is getting a Cad 500 transplant.
77 C 30 dualie, 454, 4 speed with a 10 foot flatbed and hoist. It does the heavy work and hauls the projects around.
