Nope, 7' was the longest bed available.

Nope. From the factory 7ft was the longest you can get. However I've seen some people stretch the frame of a LWB Ranger to build a 50's model F100 though. Usually they use the 1987 to 1993 LBW Ranger frame and stretch it about 1.5 to 2 ft.

In 1970-1979 ,Ford produced a line up of F-150s
One of them was badged Ranger
It has an 8 foot bed,
But None of the compact model Rangers have an
8 foot bed from the factory
