Sounds like a nice truck. Post up your vin# and some of the folks that have that capability should be along to help you out with answers to your questions. Are you saying your vin tag matches the stamped frame vin# when you say all matching #s? Welcome to FTE and have you restored it or are you going to restore it? Let us know and post up some pics we all like to see pics of what others are doing with their trucks.

My understanding is that all 4x4 up to 1966 had 57-60 bed on them. That would be the first thing I would look for. If it doesn't have that bed then the bed has been swapped. If it is a Unibody, then it is not stock 4x4.

Welcome to FTE

24,610 1962 F100 Styleside (non Uni) pickups were assembled. There are no breakdowns available that give production figures inre to 2WD or 4WD, how many were Standard or Custom Cabs, what engine/trans and etc they came with.

FoMoCo threw away all the records that pertains to 1961/66 trucks decades ago.

The sketchy production figures come from R. L. Polk & Co., that have kept these records for US automakers since the 19teens.

No such thing as numbers matching on any Ford product of this era (excepting Shelby's). Numbers matching is a GM thing.

Sorry, that's in-correct.

All 1961/66 F100/250 2WD/4WD's (and F350's) were available as a: Flareside or Styleside Pickup, as a Cab & Chassis, Open Drive-Away (Chassis & Cowl & Cowl & Windshield), or w/a factory installed Flat or Stake Bed.

1961/63 F100/250 2WD's were also available with a Unit Body, called Uni's by enthusiasts.

Long and short 1957/60 Styleside Beds will be found on the following: 1961/65 F100/250 4WD / 1961/66 F350 (exclusive 9' Express Bed only) / 1962/63 F100/250 2WD / 1966 F250 4WD.

1966 F100 4WD's have coil spring front suspension. Use the 1964/66 F100/250 2WD Styleside bed, same cab as 1965/66 F100/250 2WD's. The front fenders are the same as 1961/66 F100/250 2WD's, have a 36" opening radius.

NumberDummy, I wasn't complete in what I thought. I knew that they made many Flairside 4x4's, and flat beds. So am I right in saying that all 4x4 F100's Stylesides were the 57-60 bed until 1965? Sometimes called wrong bed. Just want to clarify my knowledge.

1966 F100 4WD's used the 1964/66 F100/250 2WD Styleside bed. All other 1961/66 4WD's used the 1957/60 'wrong bed.'

Nice truck. I looked at the pics you posted. It looks like its all there. Steering wheel is not the correct one for the 4x4. You can see the way it fits the column. Should have a 4 spoke steering wheel instead. Looks like a keeper to me. Where at in Idaho did you find that. Im up here in Washington state only about 30 miles from Idaho border. Oh you can still find the 4 spoke steering wheel being sold on ebay. Be advised be ready to pay a handsome price.

haha Number dummy i read some of the other posts you did and i hoped for some reason a list came up between now and then, oh well thanks though for you're help.

buzz thanks for letting me know i didnt know that, but the truck is on the clearwater river on my dads mechanic shop property, also i have some uni-body doors if anyone whats to buy them.

I'm bringing it down to Nevada on a U-haul to fix it up, i don't have much time when i go up to Idaho, otherwise on this trip I'm going to weld the muffler on, and install new seats before i bring it back.
