Can one of you put a straight edge across the A-pillars w/ the doors open and measure distance from one of the front body mount hole centerline perpendicular to the straight edge? maybe a sketch would help...

I need this measurement too, as my front body mount holes are totally rotted away.

Best I can tell, because it's hard to get in there, and nothing is on the same plane (The rain in Spain stays mainly on the plane--so go there by boat)I believe the measurement you asked for is 5-3/4". From the firewall to the bolt appears to be 9-1/4".
However, if the rest of your body mounts are intact, I would put the body on a frame, with the other 4 bolt holes lined up and locate your front mounts by the frame holes.
Oh, my body is a '26 Tudor. OK, before someone nails me on that statement: "My T's body from which I took these measurements is a 26 Tudor." :-)
