    Sounds like you want to put a model A body on a T chassis. Its done all the time.You have to put firewall where you need it and legnthen frame rails if its a short chassis. From edge of lip around firewall to center of wheel wells is 74" . www.aaltered.com

    Looking at an old drawing I have it looks like 61,28125 inces.

    Hope it helps!

  8. You are certainly welcome :)
     
  9. I'm running a stock model A wheelbase, 101.5". From the center of my front crossmember back to the point where the firewall touches the frame is 30". However, my firewall "tucks in" about 2" from the main face of the firewall to the bit that attaches to the frame, so if you are measuring from the main face of the firewall to the center of the front crossmember, then it would be 28". My body is bolted to the stock body mounts on the frame. So--depending on where you measure on from the firewall to the center of the rearend is either 71.5 or 73.5". And that wheelbase and body set-back is the same for all model A body styles--sedan, roadster, phaeton, coupe, pickup, and roadster pickup.
