Unforntunately these won't help much with the tinwork in place etc.---DUH!-- These are a 442 and a 446 (Sunsets-prior to '73) Anyway its 13" from the dash tower base to the seat frame front and another 9 1/2" to the seat frame rear panel Plus the 1 inch flange which mounts to differential bolts--Sorry, I wasn't much help.
Sorry, its taking so long for your answer, but finally today I should have the time to send some pics.

The open space begins at 13 1/4" rearward from the base of the dash tower and extends another 11 1/4 to the end.
There are 4 mounting holes for the seat/fender/gas tank assy, drilled 1/2 inch diam. at a 7 3/8 x 9 3/4 pattern which is 7/8 inch from the read end of the frame. (Curiously, the left two are tapped level with the diamond plate and the right 2 are drilled 5/8 and tapped 1/2" into the lower angle flange-no idea why).
3/4 x 1 3/4 angle was welded at the edge of the diamond plate and across the rear of the frame to attach the differential housing. I did NOT measure their locations as yours may be slightly different-You can see those bolt heads in the picture. If you center, and measure your housing, you will know where to drill the angle iron for your fit, before you weld in place.
Lastly, 2 gasoline tank perches are spot welded 3 3/4 from the frame rear. They are "Z'd" and formed (likely heated) into a slight arch- the upper and lower "Z" flanges are 5/8 apart and 7/8" wide each x 5 3/4 long.
