Scott, I have a very nice one but it is expensive. For some reason there are a lot of 6 Rivet rear end housings around but no front axles.

Pure speculation. The early pressed steel rear axle housings were weak. Many of them got changed out when the better ones showed up just a couple years later. The weak ones may have been tossed behind the barn where they could remain for half a century until someone found it and rescued them (they kept many things that they thought may become useful for something). The front axles were not so bad. They stayed on the old car until the whole thing went into a scrap drive. Hence, rare front axles, and relatively common rear housings.
As I say, pure speculation.

Glen and Scott, Good luck to both of you!

Does anyone here happen to have a decent pair of six rivet axle housings they'd be willing to part with???

How much does an early axle and spindles sell for? I haven't seen one for sale in years.

Front axles are very rare. A front axle and pair of 6 rivet housings sold on e-bay i believe for $12,000.00

The last pair of 6 rivet rear axle housings I had sold for 3200.
The last front axle and spindles sold for 2500.
Just relating my experience, not saying these are current values.

Wayne, you are correct that the no rivet rear axle housings were poor. The worst feature was the babbit axle and drive shaft bearings. These wore quickly allowing the pinion gear to skip a tooth on the ring gear and break the housing. These housings were very thin. I've seen a few over the years that were so rusted out that they couldn't be saved. Good no rivet housings are almost impossible to find.
