Sounds good, especially the rust free part! Double check the cab mounts and floors from underneath.

I have a rust free 62 swb unibody, straight 6, all original and I just turned down $3500 for it. I think you could make some $ on it.

Nothing weird about it, t'was the way things worked back then. There should be a R/S door lock cylinder.

Custom Cabs came with R/L door lock cylinders, Standard Cabs only came with a right door lock cylinder as standard equipment, left side was optional.

For decades, people locked the left door (all automakers cars & trucks) from the inside, then slide over the seat, got out, locked the right door using the provided lock cylinder.

Why? Because many streets did not have painted dividing lines, traffic was chaotic with people weaving in/out. So...automakers didn't want people standing out in the street locking/unlocking left doors.

It should have the right side lock cylinder as all vehicles did from the 19teens thru the 1940's. If it doesn't, someone removed it, filled in the hole.

Early vehicles had no doors..at all. Model T's had an impression of a left door in the sheet metal. By the 1920's, had both front doors, but only the right door had a lock cylinder

1951 "Deluxe 5 Star" cabs were the first Ford trucks to come with both R & L lock cylinders as standard equipment. Ford changed the name Deluxe in 1955 to Custom.

I don't recall if it was 1963 or 1964 that Standard Cabs came with both...as standard equipment. I know 1965's had both, cuz I bought a 1965 F100 8' Styleside Standard Cab...brand new in March 1965.

It seems awkward, but whenever you "insert a picture" to one of these threads, the forum is looking for the picture somewhere on the web (which is always available) rather than from somewhere on your hard drive (which isn't always available).

While you're making a post on FTE, select the pic you want to post from your Photobucket album. When the large version of the pic is open, right mouse click on it and select "View Image Info". The image info will be highlighted and will look something like this:
http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...ghtsafter1.jpg

Copy that highlighted info (right click / copy).

When you have the spot in your post where you want the pic to be placed, select the "Insert Image" icon at the top of the post (looks like a mountain) and paste (right click / paste) the image info you copied in the highlighted box (just shows "http://" when it opens).

Your pic will be placed in the post.

Hope that helps.
