Unless you get lucky, you are going to have to modify an existing driveshaft. Why not just get your Mustang one lengthened.

Any tranny or driveline shop should be able to do this.

Check what kind of money that is going to cost you, as you may be better off going with new ends and have them make up the shaft. Or advertise in cruisin times. www.cruisintimes.org/
