Nope .   Maybe it's harder than I thought .

 In order to keep this moving along I'll give a couple of hints .  The first one is a photo of the other side of the same part .

I've got that Vette, dont think it was from there. Looks like a dual engine dragster part, or maybe a motor sickle chain drive.

No ,  it's not from the '62 Vette and it's not a motor sickle chain drive .  The tool maker must have been having fun putting the details inside since it can't be seen when it's finished !

 

Hint # 2 :  It is an AMT kit .

 

edit :  The original issue was MPC .  It was reissued as an AMT .

AMT Paul Revere & the Raiders Coach

 

 Yes !  The Raiders Coach was originally a MPC kit and was reissued under the AMT name .

 The part is the rear cover of the dual drive rear axle .

Nope, but that's a good guess and you're on the right track.
