But most 65 f100's have the turn signals above the headlights so I was curious if this one is special in some way

Sounds like you have a '64 grill like mine. Post a picture and we'll be able to tell for sure. ~Pat

ALL 1961/64: Parking lamps are mounted to the grille.

ALL 1965/66: Parking lamps located in the upper grille panel.

1961/66 grilles interchange, but the location of the parking lamps are different.

So, you either have a 1964, or a 1965 with a 1961/64 grille and upper grille panel.

1965/66 F100/250 2WD have Twin-I-Beam front suspension with coil springs.

1961/64 F100/250 2WD have one piece front axle with leaf springs.
