Measure center of wheel to center of wheel (wheelbase) on the actual vehicle it is 2.29m (2290mm). If you measure the model, you will get a distance in mm.

Model Distance/Actual distance

for 1/72 -> x scale mm = 2290/72 = 31.8mm
for 1/32 -> x scale mm = 2290/32 = 71.6mm

So if you make a square on the model and put two corners at the wheel centers and get the actual scaled size from that.
