Metallic clanking from rear end when car is in motion suggests broken part in drive shaft or differential One respondent suggests ".Likely a broken pinion bearing or disintegrated Babbitt thrust washers in the rear."
I need to transport the car from Cape Cod to someone equipped to do the work
Try calling Lang's Old Car Parts (1-978-297-1919) and asking who they know in the area - there maybe someone closer to go to but BE SURE to get recommendations from the people in your area - there is more than one idiot there that thinks he knows what he is doing...
If you need, I know a few people from the south shore who could help guide you to the right person. Send me a PM with your e-mail or phone and I'll get you in touch with someone who knows that area better than I do.

If you want it done right you are in luck if you can get the car to Southboro, Ma, J and M Machine...You wont find any better and they are pretty close to you in proximity.
They have done two 1912 engines for me
Its a no brainer for you Pete, call J and M...
