This 1962 Ford F-100 Unibody is a very unique pickup. It has a rare
body design, a cool two-tone, a comfy interior, upgraded
suspension, and a big V8 under the hood. It all makes for a custom
pickup that was meant to be enjoyed to the fullest.
These unibody pickups are quite a nice find. They were only offered
for the first few years of the fourth-gen F-Series, and since they
were an option, not everyone got one. So this one loves to showcase
its rarity with a custom two-tone that highlights the nearly
seamless profile. After all, that long silver streak on the side
looks awesome. Many of the body's sheet metal creases provide the
separation from the red on the upper end, and on the bottom, the
red gives the fenders extra flare. It all looks quite clean thanks
to the addition of the black pinstripe further defining the
boundary. There are more great custom details, like the
color-matched grille, dual exhaust tips, color-matched bed liner
paint, and Pacer 15-inch wheels. The overall impression is quite
attractive, but it never tries to get so fancy that you'll get
nervous taking it out on the road. After all, part of the fun of a
custom truck is getting it out there so others see it.
The interior has an attractive and useful style. The white bench
seat is quite distinctive, and the smooth dash is done in an
exterior-matching red. Plus, the black carpet has a plush feel, and
it's nice and dark so you don't always worry about dusty shoes. You
have good comfort upgrades like an AM/FM/CD stereo and provisions
for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing.) There are also
great driver-ready upgrades, like the tilt steering column,
Lokar-style floor shifter, a large tach, and AutoMeter Sport-Comp
auxiliary readouts. So it reminds you this is a truck that's built
Ford's 390 cubic-inch V8 is a great motor for hardy power. It's the
ideal kind of setup where you know you'll love to do a little
tinkering on a Saturday morning to dial-in the right performance
for your weekend cruising. It's built with polished fabricated
valve covers, an Edelbrock intake, and we're told it's topped with
a new Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. And long tube headers add
both power and rumble as this V8 exhales through the dual exhaust.
It's built to be a driver, and so you have an upgraded independent
end, a three-speed automatic transmission, newer shocks, power
steering, and power brakes with discs up front.
This is the rare classic Ford truck that has been upgraded so that
you can show off its uniqueness with style, power, and comfort.
