230SL driveshaft

I have a 1966 230SL bodyshell with a 250SL engine and a manual 4-speed transmission - the driveshaft is missing. I have been offered a 1971 manual 4-speed 280SL driveshaft, and I was wondering if the driveshaft is the same on all manual SLs, from 230 thru 250 to 280. Does anybody know? Thanks...

Not sure about the 230SL, but the 250SL and 280SL do share the same driveshaft. Even if there is some small difference in the 230SL part, the one you're looking at is still a good bet.
