Does anyone know right off what a stock C1 rear end width from brake drum face to brake drum face is? ...and width from spring perch or spring center to spring center if known.

I'm looking at a rear end on E-bay and don't have my C1 close enough to measure.

Thanks...Stan

Good morning and thanks very much Herb for your time . I really appreciate you measuring yours...

I was looking at a p-trac on ebay (12 bolt) that had beeen narrowed. I would use a stock corvette p-trac if I had one..my rear end is fine just isn't a p-trac. Can't seem to find one that isn't so far away the freight would make it less of a consideration.

Do you know what yours is and if it is a p-trac? You can PM or e-mail me with the info if you do, and a price.

Thanks again....Stan

C1 rearend

I have a 1960 4 series P case posi pumpkin (4:56 gears no extra cost if wanted) disassembled and packed for shipping, asking $499.00. The potential buyer did not buy it since the build date was one week after the date(s) needed for his car. I believe the FEDEX Ground was $60.00. Interested?

P.S. My car now has an 87 Vette rearend, I kept the pumpkin for a 56 Chevy wagon, which was sold last summer.

Thanks for the offer vetteman...

Right now I'm really after one I can just drop in..... with higher gears, 3:40's or so. I'll keep it in mind though, thanks for the offer.

Welcome to the CAC.

What is your intended usage? Just driving or racing?
