Does anyone know the drive shaft stripe colors and locations for an early 1964.5 F code Dearborn convertible, 260 V8 / C4 auto with factory air? VIN 5F08F151954

I actually dismantled and carefully cleaned the drive shaft today. I found evidence of three (3) ) stripes but, no colors were revealed. I was able to measure where the lines were and this is what I found, measuring from the rear of the shaft from centerline of the U joint:

  • 1st stripe; 14 3/8" to the center of a 3/4" wide stripe.
  • 2nd stripe; 30" to the center of a 1/2" wide stripe.
  • 3rd stripe; 33" to the center of a 5/8" wide stripe.
These are fairly accurate in distance from the U joint but, the width is approximate. The colors were non-existant. I am positive that drive shaft is original to the car and it is a numbers matching car.

I just wanted to post the findings in hopes that it may help someone else. I am still trying to figure out what colors the stripes were.

Someone said a build date might be helpful in finding someone with a Dearborn car built in the same month. The stripes should be the same. My build date was 29F (June 29).
