I have one as well, although my father (who gave it to me before he passed on), swapped the original short bed for a long bed off of his other '66. The VIN is F11YR859380.
My brother took the short bed and made a trailer out of it and still has it, although it's pretty beat up. Now I'm wondering if it would be worth getting from him and somehow getting it from CA to Houston..

1966 Ford shortbed styleside 4wd trucks do exsist

I had all but given up on trying to find that elusive 1966 F-100 shortbed styleside 4WD truck and almost by accident 2 years ago I came across an ad placed in craigslist for a factory 4WD shortbed. It was exactly what the owner stated. This truck was unmolested with all factory equipment in tact while its not perfect is has potential.

The funny thing about this truck is besides being equipped with 4WD it is a bare bones as you could possible order one, no custom cab trim, no extras frills just 4WD.

I am listing the VIN # and would appreciate anyone who can decode the complete VIN for me.

F11YK891792

17 = Washington D.C. Ford District Sales Office, where the original selling dealer ordered the truck from.
Fixed it for you. If you're going to copy my decode info, please copy all of it correctly.

There is no way to know if 1961/66 F100/350's came with pickup beds or not, except 1963 Uni's. '63 Uni's have their body style: 66A (Standard Uni Cab) or 66B (Custom Uni Cab) stamped on the Warranty Plate.

Welcome to FTE

F11 = F100 4WD

Y = 352 2V (optional), 240 I-6 was standard equipment, 300 I-6 was also optional.

K = Kansas City MO Assembly Plant.

891792 = 1966, assembled July 1966.

No frills? Basic truck was a 'stripper' 2WD Standard Cab Cab & Chassis, no 'back of cab' equipment, just bare frame rails. 240 I-6, 3-on-the-tree manual trans was standard equipment.

AM radio, economy/deluxe heaters, spare wheel and the tire (!), spare tire carrier, jack/lug wrench, tu-tone paint, chrome front bumper, side mouldings, 4 speed manual, oil & amp gauges, rear bumper, outside mirrors, lap seat belts: Optional!

How many of these 'frills' does your truck have?

Hi Everyone,
I recently purchased the 1966 F100 4X4 Flairside from a friend. I have not been able to find a VIN help site that tells me where it was manufactured. The fifth character is "C". The entire vin is F11AC847699.
Thanks
Jim

C = Ontario, Canada... If Im not mistaken, its the same plant that produced the last of the full size RWD cars... Like my 91 Country Squire and with the demise of the full size RWD car it was closed.
