Anyone know what it is or has one to measure?
The best info I could find was 60-61" in between backing plates. How accurate of a measurement do you need?
Changing axles? Complete rear end swap?

mainly concerned about the front track width. I will probably do a narrowed 9" rearend in the back anyway so its not that important.
Nearly all cars before the fifties were standard 4'8" or 56" track width. There were a few cycle cars and mini cars with narrow track but they had a hard job driving on the rutted country roads of the day. Your DeSoto is probably 56" or close to it.
just getting back on this board do you still need these measurements? I have 2 39 coupes.
No....I'm good. Thanks
