Default 36 Chevy floor dimensions?

Hey everyone. I'm pulling the project out of long term hibernation, and finding I'm in need of some dimensions. Its a '36 Chevy two-door humpback sedan. The floor was rotted away long ago, and before she went on the back burner, it was taken off it's frame. Moving it twice, and a light snow load last winter has tweaked the body slightly. I know there is a small bend in the A-pillars, as the door tops collide with the B-pillars, but can close when lifted. I'm also concerned that the lower section of the quarters, directly behind the doors, is bowed outwards slightly.

Can someone with one of these get me some measurements, please? Door frame openings at the bottom of the doors, and interior width (x wide, x inches below rear widows) would be very helpful. The original floor is intact from the rear axle rearward, so measurements aren't needed back there.

I have a donor floor and frame ready for it, but I'd rather do the measure twice, cut once thing, then break out the floorboard stretcher when its cut too narrow.

Not sure if you can find the dimension you need in this link, but it's usually a good source for info anyways.

For some reason, good '36 information is hard to find. I've got the PDF from snopro's link and it's incomplete, naturally, missing some pages and clarification that would be helpful to you.... however, if you decifer page 82, you might have enough to work with.

File too big to attach.
