Sport trac frame

Ok, here goes. I have a 1947 Ford truck. I was hoping to put the body on a 2004+ F150, but that wont work since the frame is to wide at the cab area. My wife had a 01 Sport Trac that we had from new till about 5 years ago. Should have kept it as a toy, but new kid on the way, no money for toys.

So I am wondering if anyone knows or where I can get some frame measurements for a sport trac, or are they similar to regular explorers of the frame era? Reason I am asking is there are several threads on here and elsewhere where people have put early to mid 50's Ford trucks (and a few Chevy trucks) on regular explorer frames. My wheel base on the 47 is 122" and Sport Tracs are 126. I do not think any explorers has a larger wheelbase than 112" IIRC.

Pictures would be awesome to have as well.

What I am hoping to do is find a wrecked or blown up Sport Trac for cheap, strip it down to the frame and go from there.

I can take some measurements of our 2003 Sport Trac's frame, what exactly are you looking for? Inside of frame to inside of frame, outside of frame to outside of frame?

Thanks, but I found out that the sport trac would not work either. Went with a 01 Ranger for my project.
