Year of car 1969
Norwood  car
Month and week of vehicle assembly 12B
Engine 396
Transmission M20
Driveshaft length (measured center of u joint to center of u joint)49.56 in.
Driveshaft casting number ?
Type of attachment to pinion yoke. strap and bolts method.
Code stamped on front of passenger side axle tube. BS
Paint stripes ľnone left
Position of the u-joint flanges= "clocked" about 30 degrees off from each other
I have an extra driveshaft from a friends 69 396. He parted it out back around 1990 and gave me some parts. It is the same as my original. No stripes visible on either. MAy show up evidence if I clean them (sand) Will get to other 2 cars as time permits.

Bentley,  I think sanding the drive shaft will totally remove any remaining paint residue (along wtih the surface rust) as it did on mine.  The best method I've seen used is 'soaking' the driveshaft in  Metal Rescue, or the harbor Frieght Label "evapoRust".   Both those products work very well.   I'd degrease the driveshaft, then rig up a tight bathing fixture; some of the guys used a large PVC (that just fit the drive shaft yokes, make it long enough, glue on one end cap, and use the other as pushon/off.   Put the driveshaft in, and fill to the top with the EvapoRust or Metal Rescue..   from what I've seen here and on TC, it works super...

Thanks, Bryon/Gary I may try this. Shaft has surface rust and I thought it was too far gone as far as ever finding paint, but worth a try, I guess. I do believe the original U joints are still in the shaft though. They have a dimple aprox.1/2 in, diam on each side with a letter in the bottom...kinda hard to see at this point. There are clips on the ends like snap rings.
