I was told this 1964 F100 was originally a wrecker in Branford, CT.
The flareside bed is a different color (red) under the brushed on orange paint. There are bucket seats inside maybe falcon not sure, but no console though. The back driver side fender has a gas tank cap on it which leads nowhere anyone know what it would have been used for?
Also, what were the production figures for 1964 F100?
Been reading your forums posts for a while i'm amazed by the depth and generosity of your knowledge.
Thank you all for the information. I did some research on my F100, very excited.
First thank you for the information about the VIN. Youíve inspired me to research all I can on this great old workhorse. I am now the proud owner of the 1964 Ford Truck 100-350 Series Shop Manual, the 1964/72 Ford Truck Master Parts and Accesories Catalog and the Ford Shop Tips volume one and two. Iíve also discovered that the truck was originally owned by a Wayne Plunske from what I can tell a very well known/respected owner operator of Plunskeís Garage in Wallingford, CT. They have a fleet of vintage trucks and wreckers itís truly incredible to see the attention to detail these working vintage wreckers receive by Wayne (Mid 80ís) and his two sons. I will be visiting their garage this Saturday to see where my truck used to call home. Iím hoping theyíll allow me to match their unique paint scheme in honor of my trucks history. Iíve also contacted Eastwoods Auto Machine in Somersville CT to inquire about a total rebuild on the Y Block. (Has anyone used them before or recommend someone in CT?) Iím starting the long list of y block perfromance parts now, I donít think Iíll keep a running total though as that might get scary. Iím hoping to make her better than new and then enjoy her each chance I get. Iíll be posting pictures soon and Iím sure Iíll have lotís of questions as I tear her down to the frame. Thanks again.
