Garry, the F-100, F-150, F-250, F-350 Long bed pickups were 133 inch wheel base,
The F-350 Super Camper Special was built on the 140 inch wheel base frame. The bed was still overall 8ft long, The inter fender wells were move back 8 inches in manufacture. To put it in simplest terms.
The reason for the longer frame was for a 2 fold advantage,...
#1... when carrying a 12ft COE Camper more wt was moved forward of the rear axle for better wt distribution. Better handling too
#2... the Spare Tire was moved into the hollow of the bed just forward of the rear axle, the RH front 1/4 panel of the Bed was removable to access it!
Hope this helps.

They often had a compartment on the lower side of the box too. Maybe this was for the spare tire or was on the opposite side of the spare tire.

Stick, That little compartment You mentioned was a tool box of a sort it was an option the regular Long beds, Not the F-350 S.C.S.s I have not seen a LH mounted little compartment from the factory. not to say that may have be a very unused option in the line up. That option was available back into the 64 to 66 body style series.
There are major difference in the 140 inch wb box and the Std 133 inch bw box. The inside and outside demention are the same, But it is the under side where things are different, they are not the same at all.
