It's the BB height that creates the standover problem. But he needs the BB height to handle the (probably) 200mm crankset.

Actually, somebody published a comprehensive book of Elvgren's reference photos not too long ago; if you could find the photo, I'm sure you could sort out the bike.
Assuming of course, that you can keep your attention focused on the bike.
