If you have your original driveshaft and just need it shorter, you can have it cut down. The question is the length differences between a Powerglide and a 700R4 which being a clutch pedal guy, I'm not sure of. If no one jumps in, the length differences should be able to be found online. The 10-Bolt Rear is the same as a 12-Bolt in length, therefore you just need to find out the Trans differences. The Engine will also be the same in length as long as it sits on the original type Frame Mounts.

Google how to measure for a new driveshaft. There are several YouTube videos that show what you need to do. Then talk to whoever is going to make the new shaft, and give them the measurements.
Thank you that been helpful.
