Is this an early ancestor of a centurion or is this a custom job?

Hard to tell much from that pic, but it appears pretty straight and a clean job. The color doesn't appeal to me, but I like the idea!

The only drawback, for me personally, on these designs is insufficient air conditioning.

The rear doors aren't crew cab doors.

Looks pretty well done, save for the ≤F350 and ≥F500 front and rear doors. The only metalwork which doesn't look quite right is right above the long rear side window, and under the roof - but it might just be the way the drip-rail is sitting.
And it might actually be factory, but if it is, it is from Central or South America. I saw a '64-'66ish full-on SUV in one of those old commercials from South of the border.

These trucks/SUV's pop up all the time on here. There has even been several threads of people inquiring more info. on these trucks. They were Ford factory built vehicles. They were for the Mexican and South American markets. They are known as the B series. My opinion on these vehicles is that they would've been a perfect competitive vehicle to the chebbie suburban.

Thanks for the info!

Very interesting that Ford actually made these for another market. With the success of the Suburban, there was quite a demand for a Ford version. As far as I knew, Ford never did one until the Excursion. Wonder why they never brought the B series to the US...

I guess Ford felt there just wasn't enough demand for a vehicle like this.

The intended market would explain the Mexico plate on it

I literally "Chased" this truck across the parking lot this morning.
At first, I thought somebody had stolen Ka'Bluey while I was gone. Once I realized it wasn't Ka'Bluey I settled right down. I get to meet the guy and we stood out in the cool air for near an hour talking about our trucks.
He had bought this truck just like it's seen, 2 weeks earlier for $200.
Yes I gave him the chance to make some money, but he wasn't selling.
The last picture is my Ka'Bluey.

Unk Bob

I cannot understand why people run the mirrors on the camper trucks like that. It looks retarded.
