Something is not right. The measurement between the seatstays up at the curved fender bracket (like in your second picture) on my early '50s balloon frames is only 3 inches. The measurement down at the chainstays from side to side at the face of the rim is 3 3/16". Can you check the measurements on a 1955 Jaguar and a 1955 Corvette for differences?
