Markovic1989,

The wheelbase is roughly 141”. However, depending on whose body you have, that number may very a bit. It would be best for you to square up your body, measure your wheel wells to see if any need to be moved forward or aft to be symetrical lengthwise on each side. Now you are ready to find the centers of the wheelwells and determine your required wheelbase. Then I would suggest you get your donor car 4 wheel aligned and then measure twice and start cutting. Also, it is best to set (and fix) the suspension ride height you want prior to alignment and during strech measuremnts to ensure everything ends up exactly where you want it with the mounted body.

Yes Zeus Wayne is right on! 141" Don't be in too big of a rush to stretch your frame before you square out the body. Mine was out of square. We measured from center of wheel on all four wheel wells then crisscrosses measurements to see that it was square and that's when we noticed it. We made the rear fenders 4" wider and that's when we moved the wheelwell back. Oh another suggestion is don't be too quick to cut the hood away from the body that makes it a little tougher to line things up. I hope that makes sense. Good luck BWD
