I'm finally getting down to transferring my computer sketches (sorry guys, computer graphics is what I do for a living) into hand-drawn layout to exact scale (yeah, I can do that too - and did for many years before the advent of the computer). Anyway, I had been thinking somewhere around 100 inches for the wheelbase, but as I really begin to dial in the details - and pay close attention to scale - I'm quickly running out of room for everything. I'm using a straight six motor, so that requires some extra length (the block itself is 34" - without pulley, fan, etc.), and my cab is an International - a few inches longer than a Ford, I believe (52 1/2" from firewall to backside). Also, my axle is set out front about a foot ahead of the radiator cowl. Suddenly, it's looking like I'll need about 120" - that seems pretty long. Of course, I can set the motor back into the cowl some (it's currently located with its very back end dead even with the firewall), but I'd rather not. I could pull the axle back some too, but I definately want it haning out there on its own - suicide/racecar style. No way it can sit under the frame. I don't mind the long wheelbase per se, as it should enhance the ride (important at my severely advanced age - LOL), but I don't want it to be a bus either. Any comments, suggestions, examples, etc.?
