Nice truck. Good price. All there other than maybe a rear step bumper. Good pics though for those guys out there piecing together a truck, good reference pics to compare what and where everything goes, etc...except battery...

Step bumper would have been an aftermarket option, since Ford never offered them for these trucks.

Thru at least 1979, all rear bumpers were optional.

After reading this post, I looked at the ad again.

It's a 4WD conversion, probably by a previous owner.

The seller posted the VIN: F10CR510720

F10 = F100 2WD / C = 292 2V / R = San Jose CA Assembly Plant / 510720 = 1964, assembled March 1964.

So is the seller aware? There's no mention of a 4WD conversion.

Looking at the right side view, the front wheels seem to be too far to the rear, are not centered in the fender opening.

Edit: There's a pic of the Warranty Plate, the VIN begins with F11 = F100 4WD .. but the Warranty Plate looks brand new (possibly a Marti replacement).

So, the only way to prove whether it was originally a 4WD, is by the VIN on the title.

I did look, and...
In the ad, below the BaT essentials, the seller listed the VIN as F10 .. The pic of the Warranty Plate shows it as F11.

Compare this Warranty Plate which looks like a "new Marti replacement" with the pic of the original Warranty Plate in post #8.

1964/65 US trucks used the same Warranty Plate.

tripleframe is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.tripleframe is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
As a general rule, worry about conversions when you see the newer '64-'66 styleside bed on a '64 or '65 F 100 4x4. Even without looking at a VIN #, most will not go thru all the trouble to locate the correct bed, cut the frame down and use correct steering wheel and column. I think the dual battery conversion is a great idea! Maybe it was a factory DSO job!

I guess the only true way to verify would be to look at the frame number.
