My truck is a 65 F-100 Custom Cab 4X4 long bed and the bed is the same as a57-59 long bed.

I have never seen a short bed 65-66 4X4. I have seen short wheel base Cab & Chasis w/ short beds on them uasualy step side or utility beds

(used all the way up to 66 if used in the 4wd platform only one not to get the early styleside box was the 66 F100 4wd)

I fixed this for you to help a little bit with your Ford education. Put the check in the mail today please.:

All 4WD were of one wheelbase except the 66 F100 which rode the same 129" wb as the 2WD trucks... The other wb was 120"

Nice truck. It's an F250, not F260. The warranty plate designation of F260 indicates it's an F250 4WD.

It looks like an F260 4x4 to my eyes with those 8 lug locking front hub axles...

Really old post but the info here is wrong. The Ontario plant that produced the trucks now builds the Edge. The plant that made the crown vics and other rwd cars (and exp/ln7, etc) did close in sept. '11

CamperSpecial65 (Don) passed away about 3 years ago so your correction will not be noted by him.
