Ok, got my drive shaft out and can report some preliminaries.
Yokes are in-line.
Centers are 49.95"
Bolted straps on diff yoke.
But....seemingly not original as the u-joints are pinned, not 'C' clipped or snap ringed??
But....pins are OEM only?, replacement uni's  are furnished with 'C' clips? If so, then where the heck did this shaft come from??

Have an original 68 BB SS/RS drive shaft with original injected u-joints
Yokes are in-line.
Centers are 50".
Bolt straps on diff. yoke.
No visible paint strips but would like to clean to see if there are any.
What are you cleaning your driveshafts with and will it affect my original  joints?

Wow, yours is pin injected as well !!! Are the pins orange in color?
Maybe mine is original after all and still with the factory u-joints.
I haven't noticed any stripes on mine as yet either, but I do have to clean off a thin layer of flat black which I had sprayed over the front half of the shaft many years ago.

Bob, do you know if that shaft was from a TH400 BB car?

Rob,
Yes the pins are orange.
Yes the shaft is from a 68 BB TH400 that I bought brand new in 68.

Thanks Rob and Bob.  Yes, it appears that a length of 49.96 inches is correct for 67 and 68 big block cars with TH400.

I can not say for sure, but the u joints you have are probably original.

My spare driveshaft - donated from a car parted out a long time ago.

Norwood or Los Angeles car - Norwood
Month and week of vehicle assembly - 11C
Engine - FJ (327 cid/210 HP with manual tranny)
Transmission - Saginaw 3 speed M15 manual
Driveshaft length (measured center of u joint to center of u joint) - 49.50" (NOTE: Overall length is 55-1/8" from center of rear u-joint to end of spline)
Type of attachment to pinion yoke - u-bolts
Paint stripes and a picture - two located between 37 and 38.5" from center of rear u-joint.  Not sure of color; could be two white or possibly one white and one light blue?  - see pictures
Position of the u-joint flanges on each end - clocked

Thanks Richard.  Yes, tough to tell on the colors.  49.56 inches does appear original for your application.
