We always refered to the Tempest set up as a "speedometer cable drive" or "rope drive".

 

Now that you mention it, I remember the rope-drive jokes. Man, you have a good memory.

 

I think Mickey Thompson had the best mod for those...taking the whole mess out and swapping in a big V8 with a conventional driveshaft and axle.
