Call Denny's Driveshaft Service, these guys are the **** when it comes to this type of thing. You might actually find its cheaper to get a shaft custom made.


Here is a link to their website

Some of the other late model driveshafts look "normal". I used a Crown Vicky fuzz car one, i recall it's somewhere near 54" to U Joint centers.

I believe that shorty Aerostars are very close.
