1932 frame specifications

I just bought a 1932 ford pickup that I want to make a rat rod out of. The front suspension is a dropped axle with a tranverse spring. The rear had been set up for a corvette rear but there is no rear hardware. I don't have any fenders and don't plan on running any, but I want the rear in the stock location.Does anyone know where I can get the specs on my frame, or at least what the wheelbase of a stock 32 ford truck is? Also is a truck frame the same as all the passenger car frames in dimensions?Thanks for any help.

I have a Speedway catalogue, 50th aniversary edition. There is a drawing with the specs for the 32 frame in it. I will try to e-mail it to you.

The wheelbase on a 1932 Ford is 106 inches.

Pickup and passenger cars frames are slightly different ( for the antique boys.......but for us HotRodders.....close enough).

There are early and late frames. US and export too

These are things that worry a restorer........not a rodder

Cool

Get Wescotts Auto Restyling catalog. It has all the frame dimensions including body and fender mount holes for all the early fords. www.wescottsauto.com
