Post Need info on 1962 F100 Unibody

I inherited a 1962 F100 Unibody, short box from my uncle. It has a 223 engine, 3 speed manual shift on the column and is all original with 137,000 miles on it. Says Custom Cab on the door. What can anyone tell me about these pickups? Were there very many unibodies made? It is in great shape with only the red paint fading. (Color is red/white) He had kept it in his garage and only took it out occasionally. It even had old cracked fabric tires on it ( date of manufacture on tires was 1973!)It runs great, looks great. Any info would be appreciated. Are these things worth $$?

No, that truck isn't worth anything. I'll give you $500 for it.

Seriously, the short bed uni's are pretty popular, especiall with the street rod crowd. But, your inherited truck sounds way too nice to butcher. If it isn't rusty (and that's the ultimate enemy), it sounds like a great restoration candidate. If you're looking to sell it, I'd put an ad in (that magazine that starts with H that has a brown cover they won't let me post the name here).

Rust killed a lot of them, so they are somewhat rare. That, and they didn't sell all that well when new, as the 'uni' body wasn't as truck-sturdy as the seperate box models. Farmers and contractors didn't like 'em.

I'd suggest you keep it and work to preserve it as-is. Not many people are fortunate enough to get a vehicle handed down to them as a keepsake.

I inherited my 61 Uni from my Grampa - only two owners in 41 years. Keep it in the family and restore it - you'll be glad you did.
