    Question Box CV/MGM Dimensions

    I don't know if this is the correct forum for this question. How long are the box CV/MGMs from front bumper to rear bumper? I'm trying to price temporary storage for the CV once I get it running.

    '91 MGM, about 17ft 10inches (this is not necessarily an exact measurement), probably 18 if I had included my hitch. For some reason I thought it was closer to 17ft, but since I'm working from home I just grabbed my tape and checked.

    Thanks as well. I know I measured the Vic ages ago and remembered it being around 18'. This confirms it. These cars are LONG but still there are bigger boats out there!

    LOL, upper 20s here pretty nice day. I almost didn't put a hoodie on over my t-shirt and probably didn't need to.

    I though I had measured 17 on my '87 CV and 17.5 on my '88 Country Squire when I was 16, maybe it was more like 18 and 18.5.
    Definitely longer out there, like most '70s cars. Panthers were a downsize for the time.
