What was the wheel base of your 'short' 61 Transtar you recently sold?

63 Daytona HT (project, OHV 6 engine, soon to have dual exhaust)
51 2R16 dump truck (yes, I won the raffle)
52 Commander Starliner (basket case)(will trade for another Stude <g>)
MANY more Studes in the family and a few parts cars.

I found the Ebay ad. Yep, 131". I was curious, as I've found a M15 with a 128" wheelbase. I was hoping it was the short version, I guess it's the really short version. Could a pickup box be added to a 128" wheelbase M15? (remove the dual wheels, of course)

The pickup version of the M15 was on a 120" wheelbase. The shortest flat deck M15 was on a 128" wheelbase. In comparison, the M5 pickup was on a 113" wheelbase.
