need Wheelbase for 41 chevy buisness coupe

we just picked up the body, and are sanding and grinding now.plates are from 51, so its been sitting for awhile! We will be dropping it on a S-10 frame, but nee correct dimensions {center to center} so we can insure a perfect fit. Then its time for a LOT of fabrication, and assembly. Already have a fresh roller 350 ready to go, so if anyone can help us out, it would be awesome!

Bear in mind that a stock length wheelbase might not place the wheels in the wheel wells in the best looking locations. Measure an original car and then adapt so the wheels look more centered in the wheelwells.

116" was stock for the 41 Chevy; but like xntrik some stock wheelbases did not look right. Check out the pics at carnut and see if they look right to you or find a stocker and have a look. Good luck.
