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 –none 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.

We are getting close to working on a report for driveshafts. 

I may be contacting some of you soon to see if I can get your permission to use some of your photos.

If anyone has any more data to share it would be appreciated.

Specifically requesting any pics of the stripes on driveshafts from TH350 cars right now.

Thanks!

I finally got around to crawling under the 67 to find this info.  Hopefully it is helpful.

Here is what I found:

1967 Camaro RS/SS 396 BB with 400 TH auto.
LOS car built 03C third week of March 67
driveshaft length from center yoke to yoke 50" or very close to it
attachment to pinion yoke with straps  - injection on other joints
Code on rear axle is Q W 0 ? 0 7 G 1 (the 4th digit is hidden behind axle clamp, I wasn't going to move it)  It seems that these numbers were more left on the axle than in the place that is stated in the pictures.  I had a hard time finding it till I looked and wire brushed it more to the left. 
I found 2 paint stripes on the shaft,  From the front to the rear appears to be orange and the rear possibly green?  but i am somewhat colorblind in that color!  Spaced about 6 inches apart and about an inch wide, more near the front.
position of the u joint flanges are "inline".

Hope this helps you all.
