You can make one with a piece of aluminium tubing and two universal joints from a drive shaft that doesn't fit the '70 Cobra.

In all honesty does a piece of tubing with two universal joints glued to it actually look like a rear axle assembly? Really?

Honestly, Yes!  Find the correct size tubing and add the universal joints to it and then paint it up and you really couldn't tell the difference.  If you use an out of scale tubing, then it will look made up.

I  think that 5150 is asking for a rear axel/differential assembly, not a driveshaft.

I thought he had asked about a driveshaft. Forget my suggestion!  Sorry!!!

I do think that your suggestion for a driveshaft is a really good idea.
