So I took my 59 Bird out for some fresh fuel and a little drive and about 20 min into the drive I heard a sound like stones in the rear hub caps as I decelerated.
This got progressively worse as the noise got much louder and I thought it was then a flat tire (it wasn't) and as I continued to get it home the sound became horribly worse and the rear end seemed to shake a bit.
I would describe it as a scraping, grinding sound but only when I would let off on the gas. When I stepped on the gas it would go away.
I have never experienced this with any vehicle.
Any thoughts anyone?
Tranny? Brakes? ???
