Extended Cab

Have a line on a '81 F150 2WD Extended Cab. I really like the roomy cab. Anyone know how rare or common the '80-'86 Extended Cab was? I've not seen many (any?) before.

joshofalltrades has a good reputation on FTE.joshofalltrades has a good reputation on FTE.
they do exist, but they aren't all that common. i would guess that maybe 10% of them were made with extended cab. i see plenty of them from 87-up

personally, if i were to buy another pickup, it would have to be extended cab

The "Super Cab" model was quite common. I'd guess more like 40% were Super Cabs, at least here in Texas.

We have 3 here... 2 84's and one 85. Not everywhere, but not hard to find really either. I suspect that if you grab that, you will all of a sudden notice more of them. Seems how it is for me, you don't really notice them until you have one.

Right, "Super Cab".

Found some production numbers for '79s. Super Cabs were about 10% of the F150s in that year. Think they were growing more popular and the '81 percentage would be higher.

The extra room in the cab is nice, but it makes the truck longer and hard to manuever in tight places. Then they came out with the extended cab and the shorter bed. Now you have a problem sometimes with the shorter bed. Now they have 4 door cabs and tiny beds, they are more people movers than stuff movers.

Someone needs to make a truck that you can extend out to haul stuff, and retract for normal use. Chevy is trying with the Avalanche I guess.

I have an 82 Supercab that I got about 10 years ago. I don't see as many as I did a few years back. I got it before I joined the forums.
