1963 Ford F-100A bit of history for those that aren't familiar with Ford unibody trucks. Many people have never seen one! In 1961 Ford took the bold step of combining cab body and bed into one piece which had never been done before resulting in a very interesting vehicle. The production run only lasted 2 1/2 years because farm customers tended to overload them causing the body to warp making the doors difficult to open and close. Today these very rare and unique trucks, especially the short beds, are highly prized by hot rodders and car customizers. Just look at what's on the cover of the current issue of Street Trucks magazine for proof.
Fabrication work on this F100 unibody has been completed and it is ready to move on to the next stage of the build. This cool patina screams "keep me" but the play book is still wide open on it. This body is nice and straight, virtually RUST FREE with no evidence of collision damage, however, the cab floor needs a little work. Below is a list of the work that has been completed:
Frame has been C-notched allowing it to travel all the way to the ground if desired
Front A arm suspension has been installed.
A 454 mockup motor goes with it but it is NOT TOO LATE TO GO WITH A FORD MOTOR.
Comes with a 700R4 Automatic transmission installed.
Corvette Independent Rear Suspension has been set up and installed
Rear suspension is all there including Ride tech air springs and Corvette transverse rear spring
New exhaust tubes are mandrel bent aluminized tubing
Doors have good glass and latches
Rear glass is good, windshield needs replaced, body side moldings are included
Body pictured is included
NOTE: There is no interior or gauge cluster or seats included.
This truck has received approximately $25,000 worth of fabrication work done on it! We are a restoration shop selling it in order to make room in our shop for incoming customers projects. We don't have enough time or room to store it any longer so our loss is your gain! Keep in mind we are a restoration / rod build shop so we could complete the build for you if desired.
