    Default Rear end of a something.. $100

    Sorry to bait you all like this, one of the old dudes at work saw I had a Reno and then it was...

    "Ah goodness, My mate has a rear end from something, it was his Dads, he used to be a speed way racer, had all kinds of weird sh1t. Anyway there is a motor, gearbox, half shafts, It looks like it all came out once and just sat there. He wants $100 for the lot."

    He's going to call him and get some more details tomorrow. It's all in Sydney, I call shotgun if it's anything super cool, otherwise I don't think I'll have a need for a.. well he said Dauphine, but then he also said he had 8's, Is there a way to check with engine / gearbox numbers what it might be?

    Yes, if you get the details off the plate on the block - 688-02, 810 etc we could tell you what it is/was.
    Gearboxes are harder as they were normally identified by a bolt on aluminium tag that can sometimes be lost over the years.

    None of those rear engined cars had what I'd describe as half-shafts though.

    Noice

    Just called the guy, (Glen Cox) Images coming shortly.

    It's all in his Mother shed at Liverpool. Is a gearbox, engine, and 2 x driveshafts. Father built it back in the 70's, but ended up using a 750cc bike motor in it's place. He was a kid at the time, remembers it being built, running for a week or so, and then coming out for the 750cc bike engine. Remembers the weight was all wrong, all in the wrong place so settled for the bike engine. It has been in the back of his mothers shed since and that is being cleared out now.

    He's not a reno nut, no idea what it, he did say he posted some images to a facebook group a week or so back?

    Anyway, waiting on photos now.

    Doesn't sound like it will be much use to me. After the image come over I'll secure his permission to post his phone number here. He will need to organize a time with whomever to collect it from his mums house.

    It is a Ventoux engine:

    and a gearbox from a dauphine most likely.
