Re: Driveshaft for 1967-72 big block 400 turbo - they've got a measuring diagram, great service.

You could probably hit the junkyard if you wanted to go it cheap, beats the shipping costs from another member.

If its original I would double check the measurement. I pulled one out of a 69SS and it was 54.5 inches. Jim

The 67 might be different than 68-72. 68-72 should be around 54.5" from center to center. You can buy the correct yoke and have your driveshaft shortened, but if it may require a combination U joint with 2 different caps. If you're not worried about it looking original, Dennys is the way to go.
