Hey, y'all –*I spend most of my time over on the Gen 6 board (since I have a '73 F250 and a '74 F350 SCS), but a good friend of mine has two '61 Unibodies.
The first one he bought came with an airbag setup, later Ford front clip, etc., so he bought a second one to scavenge parts from. Both are in great, rust-free shape, since they're both CA trucks and I towed the second one home for him.
Now he wants to sell both trucks as a package deal. The sheet metal is in great shape, it's all there to make one perfect, bagged truck, but I just don't know much about these, other than they were only around for two years because of the design flaws in a truck with a bed mated to the cab that might get used for heavy loads.
Anything to look out for? You can see the truck here:
I'm just marginally considering this thing, since I have WAY too many projects already. But I'd like to know more. And feel free to call him if you're interested in it, too. He's a really good guy and an straight shooter to deal with...
