As you say, my theory also, anything is possible.
Here I have two shafts from'67 L6/PG/2.73, and one from '68 V8/PG/3.08 - don't know the application of those shown - over 40 thing
Shafts measured from shaft yoke to shaft yoke, overall
Short one is 50 inches overall by 2 3/4 inch diameter
Long one is 51 3/8 inches by 2 inch diameter
Critical speed is dependent upon OD, wall thickness, material, and length.
Just my theory.

Some of the Firebird Turbo 400 driveshafts also had inline yokes. I have one in my garage.

My 68 maybe Z28 is an 07B and the shaft has yellow and white paint swabs. The yokes are in line.

Thanks Chris, for Z28 I believe should be orange and white stripes. Faded orange can look like yellow.

Can you get a measurement center of u joint to center of u joint?  Thanks!

Just my theory.

49.96 is the length for most 67 and 68 Driveshafts. The other one is too long for any stock 67-69 Camaro.

Are you sure on your tube diameters or are you measuring the yoke?
