1941 Columbia 2-speed rear axle.


Recommended Posts

I am looking at buying a '41 Zephyr that has the Columbia.  Is it trouble prone?  I intend on touring with the car and I don't need something that is going to be a headache.

 

If I do get the car, what preventative measures should I take to reduce the risk of failure of the Columbia?

I would buy the car and put aside money to repair it if it is bad. If you are concerned about the condition and maintenance of the 2 speed rear end contact John Connely at Columbia 2 speed parts.   http://www.columbiatwospeedparts.com/index.cfm

 

John is always ready to give advice on the Columbia and has a rebuilding service that " bullet proofs" the axle. I know several people that have put on lots of miles on their Columbias without problems.
