Hey guys, Been a long time since I posted. I been so super busy with my 55 chevy and work. Now I have a new project. It may not be a chevy but it's a close relative. I have a 55 Pancho Chieftain wagon. American pancho so the wheelbase is 7in longer but from the firewall back it's just a nomad. I got this for my gf for her bday last year and we have gotten it pretty much torn down. She has decided she wants to nosebleed it. I am trying to figure out which straight-axle setup I should get form speedway motors. Not sure where to make my measurement. I measured Hub to Hub on the current axle and it comes to 52 and 1/8 inches. This doesn't seem right to me. The only straight axle setups they sell are ford and chevy and the chevy ones only go to 50 which I am assuming is disassembled axle length only not hub to hub. If anyone can point me in the proper direction that would be awesome. I have only been able to find 3-4 posts on anything similar to what I'm doing and they leave tons of the info out. Pancho or not this site has never steered me wrong.
