Hey Tom,

That drawing is in the Ref Area under the "Body & Chassis" section, "67 Wheel & Axle Dims". I play around with a CAD system called "Alibre". I did it when I was trying to figure out the largest tire I could fit. I used tape measures & strings & plumb bobs to get the dims as close as I could get.

Great post, and I'll be watching this as I'm doing an LS/Muncie swap in my 67 wagon. Unfortunately minus all of the body work for now. Thanks for the great pictures, info and time you've put in. Awesome!

Thank you for posting and sharing your results, I know a lot of effort and time was involved.

Thanks Roman!

I sometimes forget what's in the 2 Reference Areas I provided! Is that CAD program "Pay to Play"?

TurboCAD and AutoCAD is loaded on this computer, but both have recently gone with a monthly subscription method.

re-made frame pads/motor mounts - lower by half an inch - back to firewall 2" from where first made...installed the inner fenders after much rework on them - cant get new ones...
anyway - getting closer!

Tom,

Alibre is a 3D CAD program you have to buy. Then you can buy yearly "Maintenance" (or not) depending if you want to get program updates/upgrades or not.
