now then all the FW and the W stretchers used the same mount position. so if that set of holes were to low you would need something like you did to mount the bar onto the bar would have been attach straight up and down not at a angle. what they most likely had was a triangle piece folded over bolted to the angled wheel well that would keep the bar mounted square with the floor. you have just done it at a bigger scale. spacing is what you want to watch. you get them two far apart and you may run out of room to adjust the gurney for spacing front to rear. the slid mount will let you move the bar up and down for the small variation in the cots. so now it this old box doesn't crash again on my here are some pictures. on the first pay no attention to that bar as I built it to side mount the 28 in that 72 CB. the 28 should have the floor mount. I don't want to cut up the floor for something I have temporary there for the last 5 years. but the slid mount I talking about is attached to the wheel well. this allows for up and down moment of the bar. note the spacing. now we go to the 67 superior. notice the same slid mount notice the spacing. they are right at the same height vertical also. this one 90s gurney shows the amount of room you have to hook the bar on.

as for correct gurney offered that knowledge is impotent for History. but I bet there were way more rigs sold without a gurney then with one. they were offered, but most places used the one out of there older car if it was good. as a cost saving. that's why the manufactures made sure they swapped.
