Hi Simon & welcome
The wheelbase (as described on the spec sheet supplied by GTM in the 80’s) is 84”.
You may find more of the info you require in this link:

I also emailed Simon, but will stick them on here as a comparison for others.

This was the Right hand side of the car, really should of measured both sides and took the average ;)

Front wheel centre to sill = 360mm
Front wheel to rear wheel centres = 2142mm (sales material says 2133.6 so 8mm out)
Rear wheel to sill = 330mm

These were taken with a plump bob to a fixed rule, so should be close.

Be interested to see others measurement as I guess setting the caster at the front will make a little difference to the distance.

Mine were taken from passenger side. I held a rule flat against the end of the sill and then with a helper measured with a tape measure.

Front wheel centre to sill = 335mm
Front wheel to rear wheel centres = 2130mm
Rear wheel to sill = 320mm

I think my car has Metro front hubs, I don't if that makes any difference to that measurement.
