1962 F100 short box on E-bay

Hi,
I was just browsing the construction equipment pages on e-bay and came across something that may be of interest to someone. There is a listing for a 1962 F100 uni-body short box 6 cylinder 4 speed. e-bay #1704132892. It does not appear that there are any bids yet. I don't know too much about these oldsters, and was wondering if there actually was a "uni-body" pickup. To my knowledge uni-body means the body also serves as the frame. I am not bidding on this truck, but was wondering if someone has ever heard of a uni-body F100...anyone???

Yep, 61-63 were unibodies. I have a '63 long bed that I'm working on now.

Pat, Ford made the unibody from 61-63 and is the cab and bed in one piece, both short and long beds.

You're confusing "uni-body" with "unit body." Unit body construction refers to a vehicle that does not have a separate body and frame. The alternative is "body on frame" construction. All pickups are built using body on frame construction. Unit body construction has many advantages, however, and is now the standard for cars and light vehicles. Some modern SUVs are unit bodies (Jeep Grand Cherokee, for instance), whereas others are body-on-frame.

The 1961-63 Ford F100 pickups were body-on-frame, but are referred to as "unibody" because the body had the appearance of being a single piece, instead of consisting of a separate cab and bed with a space between them. They are different, and lots of people think they are pretty cool looking, including me.

Not all were unibodys. Mine is a 62 stepside.

Actually the term "uni-body" is used to refer to our trucks and to vehicles that do not have separate frames and bodies. Unless you're a 61-63 Ford owner uni-body usually refers to the latter.
