1970 Concours Estate Driveshaft

I'm trying to find a driveshaft for my '70 wagon. It has a TH350 and a 12bolt rear end. Either that or find a shop in Arizona to have a new weld yoke put on the front and balance mine. I don't even want this to be a $600 mistake.
My car was loading up and died. I don't have a neutral safety switch on the b&m shifter so I wasn't thinking and restarted it while rolling in gear and with the throttle opened to clear it out. When it fired it was like a 3000 rpm neutral drop. Broke the front yoke and shaft hit the ground. Good thing I was doing only about 5 mph.

Find your year El Camino, WHY? El Caminos start life on the Assmb. line as a Sta. Wgn. El Caminos share the SAME floor pan and Frame & other items such as Wheelbase 69 - 72-- El Caminos & Sta. Wgns. ( 116" ---- Chevelles are 112" ) El Caminos & Sta. Wgns. have the same length driveshafts. 69--72 El Caminos & Wagons have a LOAD of different driveshafts due to MANY different factory installed drivelines. How about this piece of trivia,,,,, LOOK and LOOK hard for the word " Chevelle " on a Wagon or El Camino, Also LOOK in the grill, Wagons & El Caminos say " CHEVROLET " in the grill.
2 Dr. & SS 2 drs say,,,, " Chevelle " in the grill......................... How about that! Pontiac, Olds, Wagons SAME D-Shaft. NOT BUICKS some buicks have a longer W. Base than Other G.M. " A " Body Wgns. OK... Now its time to..... " GET THE SHAFT ". Bob
