This Old Chevy Video Perfectly Explains Floating Axles

Back in the 1930s, potential car buyers weren’t concerned with the latest tech in their cars and trucks, in fact, many could care less how cars even looked. Marketing to sell cars back in the day reflected this careless attitude towards design and focused more on the mechanics that made vehicles work.

This old video was recently found in Chevrolet’s archives that details a marketing video they made in 1936 explaining how floating axles work. This may not seem like a big deal on modern cars, but in 1936 this technology pioneered the space and significantly increased truck’s capabilities. Even if you know how a floating axle works or could care less, this video gives an interesting look at the days of automotive past.
