Hey everyone, I'm im need of a stock driveshaft for a 73 Hornet hatchback. 6 cyl or 8 cyl does not matter. Recently exploded our driveshaft on a dyno and need to replace the driveshaft to check to see if the transmission survived the shock of snapping off the yoke ears.
I'm in North West Florida so a small road trip on my part would be fine. Anyone have an extra for sale? In not sure if the coupe and wagons were the same wheel base but possibly one from another body style could fit. It's just to get the car rolling again until a heavy duty shaft can be fabricated.
Thanks in advance,
Wynn

Do you have a measurement?   I might have one, having parted out a couple of Hornets.  Joe

I have one that came out of a 75 Hornet Hatchback that had a 6-cylinder in it.  I can take some photos of the driveshaft if you like. Here is the car it came out of.  Tom

Hi Tom, if the Hornet was an auto trans it should work. I would just need the shaft and not the front yoke but willing to take what ever. Where are you located and what's the story on the Hornet pictured?

Yes, it was an automatic car and still has the yoke on it. I'll take $40 for it all and I am in Indiana. I bought the Hornet to strip out and build a tube chassis Wally Booth replica. Haven't made the progress I would have liked at this point, but the project is moving forward and about ready to start cutting the car apart.
