Hello everyone! Just joined FTE a week or so ago so I decided I would put up my truck for everyone.
I have a 1964 f100 long bed with a 223 with T98 four speed and a Ford 9" rear end. I bought this truck in September 2013 for a cool $1,300 from an old farmer. The truck has 52,000 original miles and the body is actually in really good condition for being 50 years old.
Some day I would love to completely re do my truck, but being a 20 year college, I don't have a lot of time or finances to do a whole lot of work to it. I have done a many small things since i bought the truck but this summer I hope to update the front and rear suspension and swap out the 223 with a 302 with EFI to make it a better running truck for the winter.
Welcome to FTE. Hey I was really wanting to see the truck, but the pics did not show up and or will not download. I have a '64 and I always like to see others for sure. Not sure what kind of shape it is in but nice price for sure. Try those pics again, would like to see your purchase.
Right click on his pic's than click open in a new tab. Great looking slick.
Could we see some pictures? Here is how.
But I got ta say becoming a supporter is the fastest and easiest way to post pics right from
your whatever pad/cell thing or home computer.
Few of us look in the users Gallery or album as you can see by your recent visitors.

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).

Go to Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket and sign up for a free account. Then create an album for your truck. Upload any pics you want to post on FTE to that album. Have this album open on your computer when you want to post pics on FTE.
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:
The best photos and videos | Photobucket
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).
85 XLT Bronco 351W HO 4V Dual Pipes 33X12.5 BFG's 62 Uni 390 C6 Custom Cab Sold for 9.5K Don't just Modify it Fordify it A Side Arm Is Like A Parachute, Tis Better To Have One An Never Need It, Than To Need One And Not Have It
AHHHH. Yea ND, didn't notice.
Arctic, thanks, yea is a nice looking slick...at a nice price. I want to say that bed is not typically diamond plate..? But dang yea got a nice start for sure. Custom Cab! As for the 6 banger, I would leave it, rebuild it. The PO of mine pulled it out and put a 460 in it. Power yes, but can you say GAS HOG.....lol....I was told those six cylinders have good torque PLUS it leaves it as original! But you don't have much in it so I guess do what makes ya feel good.
Nice buy and looks like a good foundation! Enjoy and good luck on it!
It might be original 52K, engine looks like it has never been touched. What appears a little odd is the Custom Cab scripts on door. If no side moldings were used, most '64 Custom Cab pickups came with the "Custom Cab" door handle scratch guards. Is it possible to add a photo of "warranty plate" on driver side door? It will answer if it was originally a "Custom Cab" and color originally painted at factory.
I know that the previous owner took the old wood bed out and welded diamond plate in the bed.
The only pickups that came with wood bed floors were Flaresides. Your truck is a Styleside, all came with steel bed floors. See parts catalog pics below.
Also, I know he took off the side trim moulding and welded up the holes.
Heres a picture of the plate on the side of the door.
