Thanks Marty.

Thanks Ed.  It does look like white and orange stripes to me.

OK, I need to clarfiy something. The number that are on the yokes are not casting numbers, those are forging numbers.  From what I have been able to find out so far, they are not Camaro specific, so they may not be of much use in this research.

But thanks for all of the information so far.  Any PLEASE keep posting!  Especially any 67 or 68 big block cars.

The most important question to be answered in any of this discussion (at least for 1969 IMO) is why the vast majority of driveshafts had offset u-joints and yet some of the more powerful engine / transmission options had the u-joints in phase.

Rich I appreciate your input - but that is not why I started this thread.  

That question has been tossed around for years and years.  As for WHY?, I don't think we will ever find an answer to that question.

Thanks for those pics.

Anybody out there have an original 396 car with original driveshaft?

1969 RS/SS Convert., built in Norwood 11D (1968), L48 engine (350 - 300 HP), M38 Trans. (Turbo 350), BR rear axle (3.07 12 bolt Posi) all original drivetrain. Driveshaft is approx. 49.5 inches c/c, clocked about 30 degrees, attached with straps to the pinion flange. Has 2 stripes, but color is gone, only discoloration remains.

Thanks for all of that information Boston14.  Exact length from 1969 AMA information says 49.56 inches.  So yours appears correct.  Thanks again.

Original 1968 Z28, Norwood, 07C, 50 inches (or darn close), staggered yoke alignment, orange and white stripes (13 inches from centerline of yoke to center between the two stripes), attachment looks like u-bolts that are flattened where they go around the u-joint.

Thanks for that information Jerry.  I believe the 50 inches (49.96) and u-bolts are correct.

Chick, what car was that driveshaft from?  Your 68 Z28?  

If so can you post the length from center of u joint to center of u joint.  Thanks.

Yes, the drive shaft is off our 68 Z/28 and the length is 52 1/2". I found the part # on the yoke but its very difficult to read other than a couple numbers.

AMA specs for '68 state 50.46" c-c.

I could be wrong but I think those are the AMA specs for use with the 396 engine with manual transmission.  I show 49.96 for all L6 and small block engines.  

Kurt S., Ed B. and I have gone through all of the parts books and AMA specs and have come up with a list of numbers.  I don't think we are quite ready to put those out there just yet.

The point of this thread is to find the lengths of ORIGINAL driveshafts to confirm what we have found so far.  

If anyone has an ORIGINAL driveshaft and would be willing to share information it will be greatly appreciated.

Has there been any definitive conclusion on the drive shaft strip color coding for the 1st Gen drive shafts, specifically the '69 Z28?
The Muncie Transmission input shafts were different between the M20 versus the M21/M22 with the number of spine teeth.  But were the output shaft splines the same on all three Muncies?  If the output splines were different, did the draft shaft strip color codes reflect this?
Based on the related links, it appears that the orange/white stripe combination has been found on 1st Gens.
Thanks!

Dave we are still working on figuring out the driveshaft paint stripes.  There were differerences, but so far we have not found anything written down.  So we are looking at examples at this point.  

As John says, all output splines on 67-69 Muncies were the same.  The large 32 spline output shaft did not start until sometime in the 1970 model year and used the 3978764 tailhousing.

Chick, can you double check that measurement?  I need the measurement from the center of one u joint to the center of the other.  I believe it should be 49.96 inches for a 68 Z28.  Thanks.

Rear axle housing is normally 40-60 percent gloss black.

Mike, yes tough to read.  Thanks anyway and good luck on your restoration.

MyRed67 - sorry I could not find your name isted - thanks for that information.  It goes along with what the length is supposed to be for 1967 Camaros with 6 cylinder and small block V8 - 49.96 inches.  The information on the u bolts helps too.  At this point, just started a database on the stripe colors.  If you could, list the color of the stripes in order from front to back.  I can't tell from the picture if the orange or white is toward the front.  If you find the casting number, please post that too.  Thanks.
