Just got off the phone and found a guy who is willing to build Aluminum driveshafts to fit a Tbird 57"+ for around $200 minus the yoke.

He would like to build it using 4" diameter tubing because of the length and asked me if it would fit.

i dont see any real part where it wouldnt except for the gas tank area.. luckily are cars use a fixed position shaft.

I measured a stock markVIII shaft and its 3.5" in diameter.

I doubt it. I have a 3.5" drive shaft in my T-bird and it's
about at close to hitting things as I would want.

Just a thought, a way check to see if it would fit clearence wise. You could make up some discs out of card board cut out the center and mount it spaces out on something like a broom stick then wrap news paper round that contraption to make a mock drive shaft, and just put that up in there to find any places that may be tight fit.

Just an idea
