    Hello all,

    Can anyone help me identify these axle? I picked these up along with set of axles from a late 20's Packard.
    These axles have 6 lug hubs, elliptic springs, and hydraulic brakes. The front axle is a tube with the spring perches riveted on. The rear axle has an aluminum center section with steel axle tubes riveted on. I was thinking Franklin or maybe Chrysler. I haven't been able to confirm either one

    Thanks
    Bobby

    Join AACA. A friend had two car trailer loads of early axles from 1913 Cad to a rare 33 Stutz DV32...some like the Stutz were ID'd and then sold by word travelling from the AACA guys. But half got scrapped, due to inability or economics to crate and ship. They averaged $150 per axle as I recall, as demand is not very big. Price it low to sell as spares, then maybe a owner will find a way to get/buy them.

    It looks like these axles are 1928 Franklin
