Looking dimensions from B pillar to B pillar cross measurement on a 31 coupe?
inside of car or outside? I have a stock body will be glad to run out and measure
inside thank you
go to Wescotts web site they have all the numbers you will need.
I've searched for HOURS on HAMB, Fordbarn, and some other sites and not really found answers for model A measurements other than dead links, references to frame drawings, and "go buy a restoration manual" that won't have your measurements.
Kevin Lee asked the question in 2005 and got the best answer - someone with a tape measure and a camera.
Check this thread:
I am creating a note file that I will turn into a thread here on the HAMB with all of the measurements I couldn't (easily) find once I get my Sport Coupe assembled. Without subrails it is almost impossible to determine what the measurements are - but I wasn't spending $300 on rails that would get cut up to channel the car.
does this help?
I just went down to the garage and measured my '1930 model A coupe:
B pillar to B pillar at the forward edge (the door opening) at top of subrail = 41" inside to inside.
Horizontally width of each B pillar at the top of the subrail from the inside of the forward edge (door opering) to the outside of the body skin = 1 13/16".
Total width outside to outside B pillars at top of subrail should be 44 5/8".
That's the last measurement I needed! Thanks!
