What are the dimensions of a Ranger chassis

I found that a Ranger and a '34 Ford coupe have the same wheelbase. There are fiberglass bodies available and I'm thinking of getting an older Ranger and putting a coupe body on it. Where can I find a diagram of a Ranger chassis or the dimensions written out?

Rangers come in three wheel bases. Track width and wheel base vary from year to year. What is the approximate wheel base and track width of the body you are looking at?

The frame was 44" wide at the rear and 25.75" at the front. The '34 coupe had a 112" wheelbase. I saw the regular cab short bed Ranger looked promising.

Here are some 1998-2002 Short wheel base regular cab dimensions.
Wheel base 111.6"
Front tread width 58.6" measured an centerline of tread
Rear tread width 57.3"
Rear frame width 32.8" outside to outside. Inside to inside 27.8"
Frame kicks up in the front and rear quite a bit. About 22" behind centerline of front wheel, the frame is flat for about 32 inches. The top of the frame kicks up in front about 9" at the front wheel and the top of the frame kicks up about 10.5" at the rear wheel. About 22" behind the front wheel and continuing rearward the frame is straight as you look down on it in a plan view.

Have a ball. One of our local builders put a 34 pickup on a ranger chassis with a turbo thunderbird 2.3 liter. Really nice combination

By the way, do you know the front frame width?
