Apr 8, 2010 update to the Triumph Group 44 GT6 project car

GT6+ Stub Axle Mystery

Does this look like a TR6 piece to you? If not, what is it?

Our research with Group 44 Inc. mechanic Lanky Foushee indicated that our GT6+ used a Corvair rear stub axle. However, since we currently have both the GT6+ and our 1964 Corvair apart at the same time, we realized that the stub axle in our Triumph is definitely not a Corvair piece. It’s not a Datsun part, either, according to expert Les Cannady. There aren’t that many IRS cars out there from this time frame. Now we’re thinking that the stub axle may actually be a Triumph TR6 piece, as it slides into a TR6 yoke. But maybe it’s a Corvette piece? What do you think?

Nope, don't think it is TR6. You could always torch the zebra apart to double check:) Hi Gary!

Maybe late model (65-69) Corvair?
