    I am looking for a nice 1970 GS 455 TH 400 with 8,2 rear driveshaft.
    I do not know if the 71-72 with the 8,5 is the same or not.

    Thanks

    The 71-72 will be shorter due to the different rearend.

    I probably have one, if you can come up with the length, from the center of the front u-joint to the center of the rear one. I'm in the middle of moving my parts and my interchange book is packed away "somewhere". Thanks, Bob.

    The GS T-400 center to center length for '70 is 55.10" and for '71 is 54.241. I got this info from '70 & '71 Assembly Manuals.

    Is that the two piece shaft?

    No. It should be a 1-piece shaft.

    Would a '69 shaft be an option?

    I will dig them out of my crawl space and take some side by side pictures and measurements. My wife and I might take a road trip your way in the next two weeks. How soon you need it and are you willing to drive somewhere near Detroit area / I-75?

    One on left is out of a 70 GS455 burgundy convertible an the other is out of a bamboo 70 GS455 hardtop, both cars had been off the road a long time before I parted them out. They appear identicle. We'll figure a price for both as soon as you tell me if they can be delivered.
