1962 Ford F100 For $1,750

1962 Ford F-100

This Ford F100 might not be in the best of condition, but it currently runs and drives! To make things even better, the seller is asking just $1,750. It does have some rust issues, but for this kind of money a few issues are to be expected. For a vehicle you could put to use right away, this seems like a great buy. Of course I would want to inspect the chassis for any serious structural issues, remember ’61 through ’63 these trucks were a unibody design. If the main structure is solid, this could be a great buy for a rolling project. If you are interested in owning this rather rare truck, you can find it here on eBay in Turbeville, South Carolina. Thanks go to Jim S for another great tip!

    Unibody trucks were not exclusive during that period, as I believe your description implies. In other words, you could buy a ’62 F100 that *isn’t* a unibody.

      Not all 61, 2, &3 Ford “pickups” were unibody, but I’m pretty sure all 2wd, non stepside F-100’s were. A 3/4 ton could be had with a separate bed (what looked like a carryover from the 57-60 pickups) although I have also seen unibody F-250’s. I am certain all of the 4WD pickups had separate beds.

      The unibody idea (what did they call it then?) ended with the 63 model year. The 1964’s were the last for a straight front axle, and all versions had separate beds. The first year for Twin I-beam was 1965. A major restyle came for 1967 making 66 the last year for this styling. You can tell a 66 by the padded dash.

    Structural issues are no different than any other truck of the time period. Even though the cab and bed are integrated on the 61 – 63 unibody trucks everything is still bolted to a standard ladder style frame. They aren’t true unibody construction.

    The step side models were not unibody,but all non step side models were.

    Unibody or not, this is a rusty beast. It will need extensive metal work.

    I never really had much love for a unibody pickup. The SWB wasn’t bad but the LWB was butt ugly (in my opinion). They had a lot of trouble with doors popping open and doors sticking shut. This one would be a good project just the same and a full restoration would be welcome. One wouldn’t likely get a good return on the investment other than pure enjoyment, but isn’t that what the hobby is all about anyways?
