Only tragic piece it's missing is the legendary tailgate. I've been reading every post in the F-100 forum all weekend and I'm thrilled to see another avenue to learn about the truck!
I'll get some pics up soon.
Are you in Mississippi? I'm in Louisiana. Wonder how many other uni-buddies are near us....
Side note...totally gonna refer to everyone in here as unibuddies from now on...

The frames on the F100's are basically the same for uni's & regular trucks. It's just that the bed was joined to the cab on the 61-63 unibody. The 61-64 trucks all had straight front axles and '65 was the beginning of the twin-i-beam suspension.
What are you plans for your truck? Be sure & post up some pics. We love pics! There's lots of good info and helpful people here, too.

I have a question.
My 63 unibody is a long bed, but i really prefer the short bed. How complicated it is to shorten my bed and how much money am i looking to spend, Any advice will be very appreciated.
Thanks,
Im from California by the way.

Hey Miklo, welcome to FTE! Where in Cali are you?

As for making a shortbed out of your longbed uni, you'd probably be better off selling it and buying the shortbed version. It wouldn't be that hard to shorten the frame but when it comes to the body....major challenge! Primarily because the body line/detail slopes down the side of the truck from front to rear. To get the proportions correct on the wheel base, a section must be cut out before the rear wheels and another section after the rear wheels. On a uni, it takes some additional major surgery to make that sloping detail correct.

I suppose another possibility would be to find a shortbed uni parts truck that has salvageable bed sides or entire bed and graft that onto your cab after you shorten your frame. Still a lot of work and extra expensive if you can't do it yourself.

Post up some pics of you truck and maybe some others have some additional comments

Hi Steven
I have not had any fuel evap/boil problems on mine and my fuel line is darn close to the front of the block. But mine is a braided line. Other than that I would just keep it off the block and make sure you are mechanically sound throughout the fuel system.

I have not been on the site for a long time so I am not sure how this works guys. I have a 1962 F100 Unibody 4WD that I've owned for 33 years. Just rebuilt the 292 in it. I move around so much for my job and live in a high hail area in Texas that my other vehicles have to stay outside. We got clobbered by hail yesterday and both of my vehicles were outside due to my 62 being inside. I am looking to part ways with my truck. It's been restored (frame on) and has been great to own and drive. Any ideas on the best way to put it up for sale? Thanks in advance

My brother has had good luck with bringatrailer.com.
Otherwise Craigslist.
Would love to see some pics of your truck.
