I want to know if I can still bearings and seals for a 1937 Oldsmobile rear end?

With all due respect, you haven't said where, if anywhere, you've asked...

You start with your local parts house, or, if lots of money, your local GM dealer....if nothing, then:

Check with Olds owners clubs (see the Olds forums here) for parts sources; most bearings/seals, unless highly unusual, can be matched by replacement bearing and/or seal companies...

You can Google for obsolete bearing/seal dealers/companies, but it's always a good idea to start with other owners (Clubs) for their experience on who/where to deal with; they often have parts dealers as "sponsors" that they've found reliable and responsible as suppliers, and this site may well have some (I don't know as I'm no longer into buying parts). Good luck

I've always had excellent results from the Olcar Bearing Company. He has many bearings and seals--especially for this application. Contact information:

Olcar Bearing Company

135 James Creek

Southern Pines, NC 28387

910-693-3324

When I've compared Olcar prices to what I could special order through NAPA, Olcar was less expensive.

Thank you for the info. The rear end is in bad condition and now I'am considering just replacing it a used one. The car is a 1937 Olds. How long did Olds use this same rear end? And were can I locate one?

Thank you
