I thought I'd post this in the General Discussions section instead of Moose's Tech section because there is a lot of good information about these early cars that is not necessarily of a technical nature but  that might be helpful for those guys who are doing restorations as well as the guys who are modifying their cars. Their are some side body measurements in the 1932 section and there might be other measurements as well but I haven't read every one of them. If nothing else it makes for some interesting reading. They are all in PDF format so you guys can save them and add them to you ever expanding reference libraries  ;)

Good stuff, Thanks.

32chevy..... If you have some time you can snoop around on this site (click link below) and find just about anything you ever wanted to know about GM vintage and classic cars. Better grab a beer because it will take you awhile ;)

And yet another excellent page from the big Moose!  Thoroughly enjoyed boning up on the '34-'35 Chevy's.
