Unibody Questions from a rookie

The questions are:
  1. what is it?
  2. What year models does it include? 60, 61?
  3. How can a person tell if they have a unibody?
Again thanks in advance for you outstanding service in helping a rookie

Dadwood,

See answers below. Somebody else may chime in and say more but this is what I've learned about the uni-bodies as I do not have one.

Again thanks in advance for you outstanding service in helping a rookie

The Ford name for it is Integral Body/Bodied ...uni is the slang nickname its gotten..

It was made from 1961-1963
They were in F100 thru F350 series pickups
A factory 4WD integral bodied pickup was never manufactured
Integral bodied pickups doors to be original style will have a straight sloping
body line whereas all of the other F series trucks have the scallop or drop
area by the vent window.

There were no Integral aka Unit-Bodied F350's assembled.

F350's offered only one type of Styleside bed from 1957 thru 1966, it was known as the Express Bed, because it was 9 feet long.

Uni or Unit body. Like the Ranchero. So cool and so many options.
