'62 Uni Buid thread

Just dawned on me today that I hadn't kept the folks on this site up to speed with my current build.

Sold the green '61 uni I had and went on a road trip to find a rust free truck. Left home after work on a Friday and ended up in Texas by way of Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana. Bought the truck and was back into Oklahoma before bedtime Saturday night.

Stopped in Springfield, MO to buy a set of rust free doors to replace the damaged left door on the truck I bought.

Plans call for an Industrial Chassis Dakota kit, 9" on triangulated 4 bars with coilovers, a 430 Lincoln engine/auto tranny, and more. This will be the Lincoln pickup that Lincoln would have built if they built pickups in 1962.

This is a 1962 Lincoln Phantom, Model MK100.

Here's a link to the pics. Will keep you posted on progress!

1962 Ford F100 4x2 - 1962 Unibody

For those interested, I'm building a 1969.5 Ford Maverick Pro Stock "clone/tribute" car in the bay next to the uni. 351C, tunnel ram, 2 4bbls, narrowed 9", top loader, etc. Built true to 1970 Pro Stock rules. Here's a link to that build.

Did a 2 day trip thru Missouri, Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma looking at cars last winter after I retired. Finally found this one near Stroud, OK. Zero rust is a big plus in Iowa. For some reason I keep ending up in an area from Dallas to Tulsa buying things.

Post your Consecutive unit number.

The uni has trim only livable in 63.

The trim was put on later in it's life. I've checked build date, colors, trim, etc. Nothing special came up. Early May '62 build date. Also had custom cab door handle scratch guards.

The trim isn't going back on, what goes on is going to be purely custom made pieces.

Pull the vin off the frame. The door tag may have been changed.

Door guards first appear for 63.

Frame vin matches the other one. Vin tag on a uni isn't on the door, it's on the glovebox. Mine all match and match my title. Nothing special, just a 6 cyl, 3 speed with 4.10 gears. The rear trim was actually long bed trim they just hacked the rear off square to make it the length they wanted and bent it down with pliers. All the trim didn't even line up. It's been painted twice so no telling when it was added.

The doors came from a guy I found on Craigslist. Just south of the Hwy 13/I44 intersection.

The 430 came rom a guy just north of Springfield up by Fruitland, just west of Hwy 65 a mile or so.

For some reason I tend to find a lot of parts around your area. Picked up a set of Boss 302 headers made for a '65 Mustang a couple months ago to use as the basis for the headers on my 351C powered Maverick.

Bought some heads and other parts in Nixa.

A lot of car nuts in your area. I tend to find just what I need down your way!
