Sounds like a rear shaft universal joint has failed (or even the diff)!! Not a major repair but you'll need another car for a while !

Welcome to the Werkz.

Does the rattling noise change with the revs when its in gear?

Can you isolate where the noise is coming from when out side of the car. Probably diff like Dabsy suggested.

Jack the rear off the ground (axle-stands), and run the motor in gear and notice/locate any unusual noises from the rear (get under her)...
