Regular cab???

Hi everyone,
This is my first post here, and know pretty much nothing about diesels, but have wanted one for quite some time. Well time has come! Im getting a 1997 regular cab HD Diesel from my wifes side of the family. Its in really good shape with only 60,000 miles.
Im going to have a bunch of questions as time goes on, but first,,,why dont I see many single cab diesels? (97) at least. I have look all over the web and found only a few pics or people that own them. Are they somewhat rare? To me, that sounds foolish, but I just don't see any.

There are probably More reg cabs that anything else. The thing is they were typically work trucks and used as such SO they got beat to death. And You see people fixing up the supercabs and crew cabs more because they are more functional for families

There's not very many regular cabs out there. In 1997 Ford didn't produce the Super Cab for the F350 models your choice was Crew Cab or Regular. I have a 97 Reg Cab XLT F350 PSD which I bought new. I had no need then for the Crew Cab but after 15 years I now need one. My 97 will be up for sale soon now that I have a 2012. My 97 Regular cab gets alot of comments about how good of condition it has been kept.

YES ford DID produce F350 supercabs in 97. It just had to be a dually 2wd, just like It had been for 10 years or so

I Stand corrected diesel brad, didn't consider the dually 2 wd. I was reffereing to the 97 F350 OBS which was offered in Reg or Crew Cab.

Thats awesome, good to see so many! I had looked quite a bit on the web and see allot.
The being used as work trucks does explain allot though, I hadn't thought about that.
Thanks for all the input!
