    My brother is looking at a Model A pickup for sale and mentioned it is a "widebody". I think he means wide bed. Is there such a thing as a widebody cab? Or is it just the different bed? Curious minds want to know...

    Just the bed is different. Late 31 pickups had other differences as well such as the steel roof and indented firewall, but none that would make it a wide body.

    Thank you. I had seen the different bed types but hadn't really thought too much about it. Makes sense.

    Keep in mind you someone could have taken the original small bed off and replaced it with a wide bed.
