Why don't you use a tape measure?   ;D

Sorry to sound like a smart ass, but if you have the driveshaft right in front of you just measure it.  But, since you asked nicely......
Nearest I can come up with right now is 50 25/32". That's from the "Mustang Restoration Guide" from Motorbooks International. Tells you the length, diameter and yoke at each end. Got lot's of info in that book.
