I have seen this before, I was of the understanding the very first prototypes of the Model 40 were based on the 32 wheelbase, I think this is why this gets repeated,
112" for the 33 up to 40 cars, 41 pickups. not sure about 41 cars but thought they were 115 or 116".

That sort of silly error should cause us to read all of the listings in their catalogs with a grain of salt.
