I got this tt bed out of my aunts woods. It was made into a dump trailer. Anyone know what the axle is out of?

I have never seen a front axle made that way. Is it made that way to be a type of independent front suspension? Looks like it would work well that way, but would add a LOT of unsprung weight?? Dave

David Sullivan was correct, Hudson Terraplane, 1934 only. It was their first attempt at independent front suspension.

Just had a 1934 Nash listed on our Ebay and has the same axle listed with it's spares. Don't know what's under the car? can't see.

Neat find. This is one of those items that the right person would pay well to have if they needed it for a restoration.

Makes me think of the guy who brought down a flat bed trailer full of old car frames, axles, and various chassis parts that mostly couldn't be identified.
That was about 15 years ago at Chicksha before it started getting smaller.
He had come from Nebraska and didn't sell anything that wasen't T related. Maybe some of the other parts would have sold at Hershey
Hopefully someone will need the axle.

This thing is probably like the knee action front suspension on 34-35 Chevy Masters,looked great on paper.
