Mr. Bowtie

3789812 center section casting number shows late 1959 Corvette posi and late 1961 posi, 62 Corvette posi and 1962–4 passenger car posi.

BM shows 3.36:1 posi gear ratio made in Buffalo, New York plant. If the 3.36:1 gear ratio hasn't been changed over the years, you will have 11–37 tooth combinations on the pinion and ring gear respectively.

For a possible match on good used rear axle parts surf through Hemmings Motor News available at any good bookstore in the USA and/or try their web site at www.hemmings.com
