Default 65' Mustang Dimensions

I am new to the forum but not to Mustangs. I am restoring a 65' I6 with my son. (I think a 289 is just too much for a "first car" )

I have been looking at the G.W. Liskey Diagram. In the diagram it has two dimensions for the width of the car. Towards the front of the car it has 54 3/4' and towards the rear of the car it has 55 1/2'. Is this correct?

Attached is the Liskey Diagram with the dimensions in questions marked.

Thanks,
-matt

While i can't comment on those body lines. i can say the FSM shows the same dim's for the under body stuff like the frame rails. so i would postulate the dims are correct.

Thanks...I thought perhaps I was missing something. So the back of the passenger compartment is actually 3/4 of an inch wider than the front. Who would have guessed.

Thanks again for your reply.
