Just FYI, that's a GM alternator on there in the pic. So it's been added on.

You may be right. The thing is-Ford installed "GM" parts from the factory in the past--Quadrajets and Delco starters and such in Ford vehicles in the past.

What do you think of that 62 F100 longwheel base UNI on Ebay?? It is kind of expensive--but it is original or new OEM (excepting the seatcover) and has many new OEM parts already installed.
In CA, these trucks which are usually rust free, are a dime a dozen.

The demand is slight because there's so many rust free cars around, that most don't bother restoring trucks..which out here have limited appeal.

Look at the '64 that Redmond Bob bought for 500 bucks. It was complete, and rust free when he bought it (no missing tailgate, horn ring, dash *****, air cleaner and etc).

To make that rusty cob as nice as the one Bob bought, will prolly cost the new owner a miminum of 3000 bucks.

I hadn't noticed the Uni thread. It looks OK, but the tailgate is gone, and while the seller may claim it comes with another tailgate, he fails to mention if it's a Uni tailgate.

If I had this truck up for sale, I would have shown a pic of the tailgate to assure potential buyers it's the correct one.

Because of the problem associated with the doors, I wouldn't be interested in buying a Uni.

I'd ask to see receipts for all the "new" parts. Buying any vehicle on ebay without having it inspected first..is like buying a pig in a poke...you really have no idea what the condition is.

Private sellers can and do...lie....worse than lawyers and used car dealers. Many sellers are also clueless about the very vehicles they are selling.

If you do buy it, the DSO is 51 = Denver CO Ford District Sales Office...where the original selling dealer ordered it from.

It wasn't sold new in AZ....cuz if it was, the DSO would be 75.
------------------------------------------------------------
Ford used Rottenchester Quadrajets on 1969/70 428 Mustangs, Torino's, Fairlanes, Mercury Cougars and Montego's, DELCO starters on quite a few vehicles.

Saginaw manual & P/S on passenger cars, F100/350's & Econolines, Harrison Radiators on many vehicles.

Who owned Saginaw and Harrison? GM.

Most vehicles are "assembled' from myriad parts bought from other companies.

How much did Ford actually manufacture "in house" for 1961/66's besides the engines?

Not the transmissions...they came from Borg-Warner, Dana (Spicer), Fuller, New Process and etc.

Not the rear ends, they came from Sterling, Dana, Timken, Rockwell and etc.

Not the 4WD transfer cases, they came from Dana and Rockwell.

Not the frames, they came from American Frame & Axle.

Not the steering gears, they came from Gemmer, Ross and Bendix.

Many of the electrical parts and all the wiring harnesses were purchased outside.

Some of the carbs came from Holley & Carter, some were Auto-Lites...which Ford owned back then.

The fuel pumps came from Carter and Airtex.

Some of the body parts were stamped out by Budd.

If I thought a bit more about it...I could come up with more examples.

Mr Bill:

You make excellent points--Ford does/did subcontract to alot of other companies. I forgot about the Saginaw power steering. And Ford was using these Saginaw power steering pumps quite recently in the E series--if they still don't still.

What is strange about Ford subcontracting is that old man Ford back in the twenties wanted to have under his control in his factories--all aspects of production-he wanted to make his own glass and wanted to grow his own rubber for the tires of the Model Ts. Old man Ford didnt want any middlemen. And now Ford subcontracts almost anything.

Dang---I tell you-I wouldnt want to get in an argument with you---your range of knowledge and understanding about these Fords are just amazing. I wish that I could be an expert at something-to the degree that you understand the parts business.

I agree that it is a taking a big chance when bidding and buying sight unseen. But this 62 Ebay Uni sure looks good thru the pictures.

I think $2k is still high. If I wanted to buy it I'd hope to pay under $1k, and I'm brave when it comes to rust repair. However, I'm also a little older and I forget that prices have gone up somewhat. It's hard to buy much that runs and drives for under $1k now a days.

I'd still try to get it for less.

Also, I don't know much about the year issues, but if these guys say to buy a later vehicle, I'm sure they're right. If you're patient and keep looking you might find a more solid example for around $2k.
I bought mine for $750 and its 292 v8 4x4 f100 and it runs nobody's business as long as i keep gas in the tank but it sat out side in the weather so long that it has faded from red to orange and its got some rust here and there and i also had to replace the starter but other then that no more problems yet and i am planing on getting a paint job before to long
