    Thanks Pete, I thought the rusty one might be 32 but have never personally seen one out of a car.
     
  4. Model A and '32 are both 50-1/2" kingpin center to center.

    There is no such thing as a non-heavy 32 axle. If a 32 has a skinny axle, it's a replacement from a 33-36.

    Got it , I have wondered about that . I have several 32 axle’s as well as 33-34 axles . I guess I have fallen into the calling it a Heavy Axle group. But what you say makes sense to me . I have 32s with both styles of axles in them . I don’t know much about 35 and up axles but can spot a 32 .

    One other question, would a 32 column/box and wheel have much value?

    The outer column with a notch cut is not worth much, and the box might be worth something but probably only to a restorer.
