Probably both. It is not uncommon for the chassis to be one and the body to be the other.

The old rule of thumb for American cars is anything that physically screws into the engine is standard and everything else is metric. Of course this has changed in recent years becoming more and more metric. You can get a pretty darn handy and complete Craftsman set of standard and metric for ~$160 so it wouldn't be a bad idea to have both.
