The wheels wil be W A Y out from under the fenders. If no fenders are to be used, the space between the body and the tires will appear odd and unattractive. I know a guy who paid a frame shop to build him a Model A chassis with the 84 up rear IRS and they told him it was too wide. He said go ahead. They said OK and went the money. He now has a 5 grand (plus parts)roller that he hates. He has to cut the floor out to clear the Zed rear crossmember. This was done to get the Model A to sit at a normal ride height. I know he would sell it for 5 grand. He is in Indy. A Model T is even more narrow than a Model A
