bigger truck wheelbase?

I got some great info from Stu showing the '57 truck specs F100 thru F500, and it shows the F350 and F500 as 130" wheelbase. I have to assume there were options to wheelbase length for van bodies, school buses, etc... Can anyone tell me what the standard wheelbase lengths were? Is it safe to assume I can just add increments in feet to the 130" like the earlier trucks did? (122", 134", 158" etc)

I had a DOH! moment. I found it for chassis cabs: 130", 142", 154", 172", and 192". Sometimes I should actually READ my books, lol.

To break it down some more: 130" and 154" for F500. 142", 154"??, 172", 192" for F600

F350's could be either single rear wheel, or dual rear wheel, but remained 130"
