I'm wondering what the chassis wheelbase measurement is on the following kits:

The Revell '55 or '57 Chevy Pro Sportsman:
http://www.modelexpr...p/REV_2046.html

The Revell / Model King '80s Firebird:
http://www.modelexpr...p/REV_2059.html

The Revell / Model King '94 Olds Pro Stock:
http://www.modelexpr...p/REV_2088.html

I have a project in mind to drop a different body onto a chassis like this, and would rather avoid a wheel base change if at all possible. If anybody has one or more of these kits in their stash and wouldn't mind putting the calipers on it for me, I would be most grateful.

Thanks in advance.

I have all these kits but they are not built yet so can't measure them. I used the 57 Pro Sportsman kit for the Shelby I built (see my avatar). It really wasn't all that much work to change the wheel base. What body will you be using? I could take that body and line it up with one of the bodies you mentioned. I'll probably have the kit your thinking about.... Or something very similar, I have over 300 in my stash.
