62 impala tranny swap

Ok. To any who might be interested in a lil more info on the tranny swap (turbo 350) for an early 60's impala this might help. I needed to shorten the drive shaft in my 62 by about 5 inches. What I did was find a stock single piece shaft from a 70 chevelle that was almost a perfect fit. And it only cost me $45 bucks. I needed about 1/2 an inch off that so I found a yoke with a shorter base. Worked perfect. hope this will help the next guy.
