    Im setting a bench seat in and different steering column from stock and I want to see what the stock setup is. Heres a pic of some colored lines if you guys can help me out!! The lower cyan colored line is from floor bottom/firewall edge to seat back where your ass would be. Next is dash to steering wheel, and steering wheel center to floor. Thanks!!!!

    15 3/4 from bottom of speedometer to outside center cap of steering wheel.

    24 3/4 from bottom of center cap to floor.

    Measurement from floor to seatback will vary.
