What a pain. :-) Some list member actually wanted me to measure the toe clip lengths! Ok, OK, you think I've got nothing better to do when the fog is thicker than whatever this morning? You might be right. I've added some approximate lengths, from the back of the most forward part of the toe clip box to the back of the mounting plate.

BTW, I've also got surplus Shimano clips, the kind that have three screw holes in a triangle and bolt down to the top of their platform (Dynadrive, etc).
