Figures its an extended cab, I have a standard cab thats in perfect shape I could sell ya. I would need pics before I would be able to give you an honest answer about your cab. But what I can tell you is that extended cabs are extremely, and let me emphasize, EXTREMELY, rare, so if you have one, you might want to look into fixing it up. Check our sponsers here or LMC Truck, and other places are pretty good.

I live in the great City of Blanchester. (Cincinnati area). I got this thing for free and it isn't in bad shape (except the normal rust spots). The engine runs great. It is a 78 F250 Ranger Explorer (X25HKCC8784) is the serial number what ever that means. I am very new to fixing working on cars. I had a 49 F1 street rod that just need the final touches and I currenly own a 2004 F250 Power stroke.

what is that part called floor supports? the cab mounts attach to these rails and the rails to the frame. Also do 78's have square or round head lights?

78's have both. The first half of the year(more or less) used round ones, and then they switched over to rectangles.
