Question about a driveshaft

I have a 67 Fairlane with a 302 and AOD transmission. I need to know what driveshaft will fit if any without serious modding, to a 8.8 rear end out of a fox body 87-93 mustang.

Basically a mustang engine, tranny, rear end swap into the 67 Fairlane.... Anybody got any answers???

Thanks,
Smitty

I learned many years ago. Put a yoke in the trans-lower car to operating stance. pull yoke out a bit over an inch, measure from u-joint center to rear end u-joint center. GO to your local bone yard and go thru their driveshaft stack till you find a good straight shoft about the same od and u-joint size. The same center to center as what you measured. + or - maybe 1/8 inch. Take it home install the correct new u-joints and drive it away.

Or......., do what Bob said, get the correct measurements and have one made up. I did that with my 34 project and it cost me a grand total of $120. Well worth the time I would have spent in a salvage yard.
