61 Unibody owner

New to the site!
Have been on Classicbroncos.com for a while.
Bought a new playmate for my '74 early bronco
Proud owner of '61 unibody. I've been looking for a while.
I plan on going to pick it up on Sunday.
Looking forward to being a part of another great group and will definitely need a lot of questions answered.
Life long Ford Fanatic!

Welcome to the FTE from Oregon, Post up the VIN and Warranty information. With it we can tell where it was made, the month it was made , original engine size, transmission, rear axle, color, and model. For a 61 the tag should be on the inside of the glove box door. If it's missing the VIN will be stamped on the right frame rail in the engine compartment just before the cab or a little under. I have a 62 Unibody Custom Cab Long bed myself made in San Jose California.

Interesting, are you sure it's a 1/2 ton, what does the VIN start with?

Just a tease......

Just to tease you guys, and maybe motivate ya a little. This is my son and his 61 Uni after we got the chassis and drive train done two years ago. The body seams have all been welded up and the front sheet metal is finished. Hopefully we'll get the floor pans welded up this summer and get the body back on.

If you still have the tag on the inside of the glove box it will show more information like MOdel, color, GVW, transmission, axle, GWV, District sales office.
