    Default C1 rear end width...

    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

    Default 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.
