Well i dont know what to tell you . This drive shaft came out of a real 67 big block car and is around 50 1/2 ". If they only came in what you are saying why are there no colors listed for those cars on the chart

I wasn’t saying it was wrong.  My point is this is new data.  From what I recalled 67-8 bb 4 speeds were orange green white.  Could this be remnants of orange?

...If they only came in what you are saying why are there no colors listed for those cars on the chart

I was asking similar question myself not too long ago? ...i was informed by reliable sources that the chart maybe left this out?

Photo (BELOW) appears in the driveshaft report (maybe half-page below the chart?)

not intending to contradict anybody... only sharing info. that might help someone?

That 1998 article is certainly dated.  Amazing how much info has been gathered since that point.

plumL78 - My 68 (12D of 67) also has a driveshaft with the stencil and only seeing one orange stripe and a couple white marks.  Could it be that production was running low and they pulled or maybe the supplier added the part # off and on or was it replaced under warranty.?.  Probably never know for certain but certainly interesting.
