1964 Ford F-100 4X4

Really nice, well preserved, great running and driving 1964 Ford F100 4X4 pickup truck. This truck was built in San Jose, California in early March of 1964 and shipped to Salt Lake City, Utah (District 73) where it was sold new. It was then used as a farm and ranch truck for years in Central Utah where it was preserved by the cold and dry climate. It was also a Domestic Special Order (DSO #3907) which may explain it's unique attributes. Please read on...
The sheet metal is in very good condition with only minor rust-through in some of the typical areas (ask for my extra pics and you will see how minimal it is). There is no bondo anywhere. Right front fender was replaced at some point but the rest of the cab and forward is the original Sandshell Beige. The bed was originally Glacier Blue but was resprayed long ago in matching Sandshell Beige. At some point prep work began with primer and sanding on a paint job which never materialized. I'd finish sanding off the white primer and let the underlying patina shine. The undercarriage has surface rust only (ask for my extra pics). All exterior lights and windshield wipers work.
The interior is all original with only light cutting to the dash years ago to install an aftermarket stereo and switch (since removed). All glass is good, doors open and close solidly and windows roll up and down properly. Passenger window handle is not original.Bench seat is very worn and could use a seat cover (included). Everything works other than the heater fan and cigarette lighter.
The running gear is interesting and likely explained by the Domestic Special Order. Engine is a great running 262cid inline 6 (with newer starter & alternator) connected to a Borg-Warner T98-A manual transmission (shifts smoothly). Transfer case is a detached Dana 24 ('Divorced' part-time 2-speed (hi-lo), used on '59-'72 F250-F350s 4x4s and were also pretty common in the '59-'66 F100s. Cast iron, gear drive, 1.86:1 low ratio, very tough) which works great. Please look closely at my extra transfer case crossmember pics; it looks like it has been removed and reattached at some point (very sturdy). Accordingto the data plate, the front axle is a Dana/Spicer 446F (Dana 44 style; upgraded with Warn locking hubs) and the rear axle is a Dana/Spicer 60 (needs shocks front & rear). What I find interesting is both axles have an 8X6.5 bolt pattern instead of 5X5.5. An online search indicates Ford made a few of these but they are rare (Dodge did too on some of their half-ton Power Wagons of the same era; not sure about Chevy/GMC).
This is a super cool truckin really good, original conditionwith hard-to-find attributes. It's ready to be a daily driver today while you fix it up cosmetically. Or better yet, keep it's great patina (they can be restored over and over but are only original once) and enjoy. Vintage trucks are climbing in value these days and vintage 4X4's even more so. I just want it to find a good home where it will be preserved for the future.

More interesting Dana 24 info I found online...
"Dana 24's are PTO-capable. The Dana 23/24 PTO's are very rare and highly prized by early Napco conversion truck owners. There were 2 styles: The early style Dana PTO that was a big cast unit that bolted directly to the case and the later style that used the standard 6 bolt PTO pattern with a thick adapter plate to fit the 23/24 cases. The early style are worth their weight in gold."
