Huh? Why (or how) is it "too narrow"?

I thought narrow was better, that means more room for a deep dish rear wheel set!

Re: 67cheby DM 3.2 install, W/PB 4link, PB hood hinges

i am not getting rid of the one i am taking out just in case i ever have the money to buy some custom made billet wheels !! i am not to keen on spacers, i think my rear wheels set in to far without them , and my disc brake brackets rub on the insides of my rear inner fenders (if i understand correctly the 67-68 rearend is about 1-2 inches narrorer)

Yes, 6x-early 70 housings are about 1.5" shorter vs. mid-70 & later.
