I may have located a complete rear axle w/ housing. Owner thinks it came out of a late 50's Hawk. The only identifying marks is the casting number on the front housing # 501826. The rear cover plate is semicircular if that is any help. He said if it was from the Stude it was a car with automatic trans. Can anyone help identify? Or if you need more info tell me where to look. Thanks

You can see the "tin tag" at about the 8:00 o'clock position on the cover.

"semicircular rear cover plate" throws me. I know of NO rear end with a semicircular cover. All are full circles.

Seriously, what kind of car is that? I KNOW it's not a Studebaker because there's no oil dripping from it!

It's my '54 Starliner. Those Chevy motors don't drip quite as much :D.

If the posted picture is a Studebaker rear end then the rear end I saw is not Studebaker. When I said semicircular I meant the cover looked like a "moon" hub cap bolted to the housing. It curved out from the housing with no indents.

Those sure are some shinny rear ends
