JimA, Don't know for sure if they do the A frame but Wescott's catalog shows the dimensions for the early Ford frames. If that's true I think you can get them off their website.

this may be a silly question but are these measurements the same for all body styles? Are all model a frames the same (tudor, p/u, 4 door)? or am i just missing something

I can't draw the line for you, but I had a look at my stock '30 sedan and the firewall is exactly even with the rear-most of the three holes for the rear engine mount.
