Will a 1969 camaro driveshaft fit 1967 to 1969 firebirds ?
Sorry I guess I was referring to the U-joints not the yokes.......

Length apparently for Firebirds 67-69 was 49.96 for all except TH400 cars which were 49.30 inches.  All 69 Camaro driveshafts were 49.56 inches. 

It may fit.  You will just have to try it and see.

I am going to go out on a limb and assume you meant 49.5 inches and not 46.5 inches.   8)

I look forward to the pics of the stripes.  Thanks.

Ok, got my drive shaft out and can report some preliminaries.
Yokes are in-line.
Centers are 49.95"
Bolted straps on diff yoke.
Engine, trans and build as per my sig.

Hi Bryon, sorry for my absence. More info to report.
Have found the orange paint stripe on mine @ 12" approx from the transmission yoke center and what appears to be the green stripe a bit further down - more cleaning needed for that one.

Thanks Rob.  Check the picture above that Charley posted.  You may have more than 2 stripes.

U-joints in line. E-clips on caps. Orange stripe 17 1/4" from front, then maybe light blue or green, then dark blue.
