'65 front Axle? Empty '65 front Axle?

Post by DanInWNY Wed Jun 01, 2022 7:24 am


My guess it would be pretty hard to come by a front axle for my Gen 1 van?

When I got it, it was converted to 4 x 4, and had a 1/2 ton Chevy straight front axle on it.

I've since considered going in a different direction, but...

...I have no 'regular' front axle!!!

There was one locally for sale on CL, but a Dodge maybe, and not the right pin-to-pin distance.

Is there one out there not TOO far from me!?!

Thanks!

You will probably have to buy a complete donor van to get the front suspension.....Watch for awhile and wait for a rustbucket and try to buy it cheap.....

Hey brother, how near is "near me"? I think I have what your looking for.

I cut these out of a pile of rust that came with my '69. I was told it was a '65 but my knowledge is limited and can only guarantee 1st gen. I also have the steering column and box that I cut out of the frame.
