Not the original rear axle; built April 7th. If it is a 67 axle it is a 3.08 open. If it is a 68/69, 2.73 open.

Garage somewhere around Scottsdale ? I was there earlier this year, sure looks familiar. Surprised at the monsoon - place is awfully dry (but great for sheet metal !). Nice layout - I'd be proud of it.

Regards,
Steve

BP is either a 3.08 (1967), or 2.73 (1968 and 1969) non-posi 10 bolt. Yours was assembled April 7th on the night shift, but you 'll need to find the casting date to know which year. However, I highly doubt an early April axle would be installed in an early December car.

Note that BP was also used on the 1965 Nova (3.07 10 bolt non-posi)

My set is going on 40 years old - started buying them in about 1980. The comment about lasting 50 years is likely close; these look like brand new, shame I didn't think to buy more than one set when I had the chance (some of these cost just a couple of bucks apiece, new). My point for picturing them is the reason I always like to use GM OEM when I can - part numbers and manufacturer are usually cast right in, made in the good 'ole U.S. of A. Hard to beat them -

I think I've got all of them, including jounce bumpers and rebounds if anyone needs detail pics -

Are you sure?

Well, I guess you're right so it's MY oops! (I was looking at the wrong number in my Hollander interchange). However, it's still not a Camaro carb. It was only used on trucks.

love the idea. So where is "the shop" where you do the dirty work?
