Yes, Parma parts are really hard to find. I could get Associated axle and try that. It’s 1/4 diameter, does Parma have the same? Diff flange may be different but I could use Associated parts there too. It would be great to get the car driveable again!

Yes Parma also used 1/4" rear axle. This is common for all American and most British 1/12 scale cars.
But the Parma uses a quite narrow pod with different offset wheel hubs, that might be a problem. If you can get other rear axle, make sure length of rear axle is same on both ends. Also diff rings and nut could be different.
During build I found the diff hub don´t like to work with some other manufacturers parts.

OK, thank you for info! I think I will try to source Parma axle first and if I can't find one then use Associated axle. I'm in no hurry with this one.

Seems that I have lost the rear axle completely. So everything including the diff is missing. I suppose there is no point for me trying to restore it. Any interest in parts here? Here’s all that is left.
