Special purpose axle cases

This axle was taken from a 1940 Chevy coupe as used on the Paris to Peking rally.
The project was to replace it with something which looked similar but much stronger. The back view is similar but ....
... it becomes clear when the old torque tube disappears ....

... that the internals are now quite different, in fact a good old Ford 9 inch

The black axle is a Fraser Nash original, the top two are period correct Mowog axles with added bracing and brackets to match the original.
