389 dip stick length?

Can any one enlighten me on what the length of a stock oil dipstick might be for a '65 389? I think my dipstick and tube are original, but would like some input. Attached are a couple of pics from where i measured to the tip of the stick. Right at 17 1/4". Thanks in advance!

It'll vary between non Ac and AC cars. AC cars have a MUCH longer dipstick. I'll go home tonight and measure mine. Mine is an original '65 GTO 389 WT block.
