271  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Original 67-69 Camaro driveshafts - information requested about your car on: June 30, 2011, 09:43:48 AM
Thanks Paul.

I looked at one yesterday.  49.5 inches center of u joint to center of u joint.
The owner was about 90 percent sure that it was from a 1969 Camaro TH400
car that he junked out after it was wrecked about 30 years ago.
It had what appeared to be an original TH400 yoke on it.  The u joints were in line.  
I could not find any stripes on it.

Fixed typo

I have not seen one on a 67-69 Camaro either. 

I have seen one on a 69 Buick Skylark and I am pretty sure it was original.

The D and N suffix was only used for PowerGlide and TH350.  Never used for Muncies.

You are going to have to post some better pics if we are going to figure this out.

i will have to check.  It might take a while, but I have an original in storage.
276  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 BLACK 396 cars got a different black tail panel paint than the body on: June 01, 2011, 10:08:32 AM
I think those two cars were either anomalies, repainted at some point (possibly at the dealership) or maybe touched up at the factory (goes with the orange peel idea) and wrong gun was used.  Guy that did the back tail panels was probably used to picking a certain gun and picked the one he used for other non-Black cars.  This was assembly line stuff.  The guys developed habits after doing things a certain way thousands of times.  Throw something slightly different into the mix and errors happened.

I believe there should be some chrome showing on the edge.

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.
