Driveline alignment. Is it dead straight or is there a bend?

My M29c was heavily modified by someone and I'm trying to get it back to being at least visually correct. I have to install a new transmission mount  and my question is this:

Is the driveshaft coaxial with the engines crankshaft and of course, the transmission shaft? Or is the engine sitting dead flat and the driveshaft dips down as it goes to the differential?

I have noticed that the carburetor is tilted from the plane of the engine, suggesting that the engine/tranny is tilted from  horizontal, likely to make the driveshaft not have to bend.
