Re: Dimensional Data - wrong assumptions

Jeff:

The EXW is, as you say, the extreme width of the car.  But EXH is not the highest point of the car, but rather the height at which the EXW occurs.

EW and EH are the relevant dimensions at the eaves, although there was some little twist in there having to do the with the latitudinal running boards.  It would take me a while to dig that nugget out.

BTW, the EXW and EXH stencils (for cars >12 ft at the eaves) were added to the ARA standard with an effective date of March 1, 1930.
