you will have to build the car on the chassis. theres no easy fix. mount everything to the chassis and then star aligning. never trust measurments on these things.

I'm on the way to the shop so let me know what dimensions you need. I'll give you reference points off mine. It's as square as they get I think. My body is rock solid and well cured. I just had it off the frame for some mods yesterday then I re-bolted it back down..

Remember these Willys were a POS in their day and lots of co's have made molds from the steel bodies then modified them. One body is not necessarily the same as someone else's.
