How Wide? How Narrow? Will It Fit? What's The Width Or Length?

Recommended Posts

Every so often a question gets asked on the Boardroom about the measurements of Westfield’s such as will it fit in my garage or how wide is the interior. So here as suggested by Captain Colonial I have attempted to pool all the information from past posts (and with a few dimensions from my own cars) to create a singe FAQ that hopefully will answer the most commonly asked dimensional questions. Please feel free to add anything of your own, correct any errors or suggest additional titles :t-up:

* disclaimer - all dimensions are approximate and are published for guidance purposes only. No allowances have been made to take account of different wheel offsets, interior trim panels, carpets or variations in manufacturing and/or assembly tolerances etc. It is always recommended that accurate measurements are taken from your own car before making any purchases or financial outlay.

Thank you for doing this sir, I am much obliged and will measure mine to get the final measurements. It's just that these get asked so often that this will be a perfect future reference.

Very well done indeed! :)

Nice one. I would have had so much less hassle if this had been available 12 or so years ago when I started my build.

A really useful FAQ.

Great post. My westy comes in a few weeks - glad it will fit in the garage!

Is that a typo regarding the 'overall length' of wides and narrows?

 

It suggests a narrow is 9cm longer?

possibly, yes :oops: and its also likely there is some discrepancy between the method of measuring the two cars. A narrow should be around 3" shorter than a wide.

Is the prelit westfield chassis the same width/ dimensions as the more modern narrow body westfield? Am thinking of a full roll cage and wondering if the spacings of the rear hoop bolts, the width of the chassis midway along the edge of the scuttle where the front legs of the cage would fit, also the length of the cockpit are going to be the same on my pre-lit (the version with the really narrow tunnel) as the narrow model? The VIN suggests it was an 89 chassis. Thanks

I have a 88 post lit I thought the 89 would be a poat lit. Are the rear wings smooth or do they have the swage on the edge?
