Howard56, now you have me confused a little (like that's hard to do). According to the Reference section on this site the 58Y8 was the Hawk and it had a 120 1/2" wheelbase. The 58LS shows to be a 2-door HT Coupe at 116 1/2" wheelbase. Where am I going wrong with this?

If you are going to skate on thin ice, you might as well dance!

I didn't look at the site ref info & took the body info out of the body parts catalog. Assume that to be correct but could be wrong. Didn't find the S designation used for a body but found the LS designation in the starting serial number category. Not sure why the S is added unless it designates supercharger.
