I have no connection to this auction. Not sure it is complete, does anybody have any more information on it?

It is used when the rear wheel is removed, so that the engine and transmission do not turn. A front wheel is installed on the spindle.

So, does the car then get picked up and towed from the front? Is the transmission put in high, and the differential gears allowed to do their thing with the driveshaft stationary?

What would be even neater would be to have some way to mount your removed rear wheel onto a freewheeling assembly so that the car could be towed with all four wheels on the ground.

Cool, thanks! The clamp-on ones with the bearing that allow use of a rear wheel look to be the most useful.

Or, if you happened to be a wrecker/recovery outfit, one could keep a mounted front wheel to accompany that particular type. I have one that takes the rear wheel AFTER you have removed what's left of the BROKEN axle !
