I need to replace the driveshaft on my 70
coupe.Does any one know of any other cars,
new or old that will fit without resizeing.
Will a shaft from a Maverick fit ?
A friend has one and says that it is smaller
in dia. than the one I have,(9in rear,c4 trans).

If you can give me your U-joint width, I can give you several interchanges.

Hmm, the choices seem to be 3 1/2" or 3 5/8"

What engine and transmission did the car originally have?

Steve,the car had a 351c with c6 and a 9in
rear.
Just rechecked the shaft and it's 3 1/2
across the yoke.The measurement I gave
previously was for the u-joint.


thanks.....perk

Wow, it looks like you have a rare one. Your driveshaft is Hollander #992, and it doesn't show any interchange. The Cougar shafts don't interchange with the Mustang shafts, surprisingly.

Looks like it's tape measure time, or you might consider sending your old driveshaft out and having the tube replaced and balanced. That'd be my choice.
