This 1962 Ford F-100 Is the Perfect Unibody Fixer Upper!
With prices for classic Ford trucks on the rise every day, it can be tough for the average Joe to find a decent one for a decent price. Since most folks can’t really afford (or want) to shell out the big bucks to score a restored or low-mileage F-Series truck from the ’60s, their best bet might just be to buy a fixer upper.
This 1962 Ford F-100 is the perfect truck for someone that is handy and wants a solid base to start with. It’s a short bed unibody model, which makes for a nice beginning. There’s a little rust, but no major cancer anywhere. According to the listing, mostly everything works as well, save for the aftermarket fog lights and rear backup lights. The truck needs a clutch as well, but those are minor complaints and easy fixes.
Otherwise, the 223 inline-six runs great, and the 3-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly. The body is solid, the interior clean, and it even has new tires and cold air-conditioning. With a new clutch a few minor fixes, this ’62 would be ready for service in no time!
The great thing about trucks like this one, other than the fact that it will probably sell for a reasonable price, is that you can make it whatever you want. Whether that be a full restoration patina’d daily driver, or a V8 swapped custom, it’s a nice blank canvas. Bidding is currently pretty low, so feel free to place your bets here.
