HIGH SPEED REAR END FOR A 34/35

Recommended Posts

I'll bring up this subject again seeing it's a while since I've seen it discussed.

Has anyone made any further progress on producing some high speed gears for the rear end of a 34/35 40 series.

Still amazes me that with so many produced and still around that there hasn't been any produced :confused:

It would be interesting to hear from anyone who may have tackled this project with success.

Or if anyone has grafted another year/make rear end to mate up to the original motor and trans with success let us all know what you did.

I know of a number of owners who would still be very interested :).

The 1937and1938buicks.com The-Torque-Tube has some articles specfic to 37 & 38's that may be on interest (I have down loaded all those avialable - some are missing)

From one of these Joe Kreps made gears for the 29 to 35 cars and was selling them for around $800.00 a set. Look him up in the roster and see what information he can help you with.

Joe was at one stage looking into doing sets for the 34/35 40 series but I believe that project didn't proceed. He had them for other series and years but not these.
