Does someone know the driveshaft length for a 69 Camaro with 350/350?

Does anybody know what the length of a driveshaft should be for a 69 Camaro with a 350 engine and 350/400 trans with a 10 bolt rear?

I am wanting to know if the driveshaft would fit from a 74 Nova 4door with 350 engine and a 350 or 400 trans....I am not sure what trans it has.

I suspect a 4 door drive shaft will be way longer than you need. With your Camaro both the trans and rearend (especially if using the Nova 8.5) effect drive shaft length. Save the 4 door drive shaft and once the engine/trans and rear are in place measure and have it cut to fit.

I measured from center of u-joint cap, end to end and got 49 inches.

What engine stands, trans and rearend did you measure that off of Patrick? Also was the car stock height, lowered or jacked up some?

This driveshaft was in my car when I bought it and it had a 350/350 in it. Supposedly original. The stands are 69 small block stands. It was at stock height. The driveshaft was not original BUT it did fit perfectly.
