GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1962 Ford F-100 Custom Cab Unibody Pick-Up for consideration. Ford introduced the 4th generation F-Series in 1961, which was sleeker and wider than its predecessor. Also introduced was the “unibody” which derived from the fact that the cab and the box are one continuous piece. Ford referred to them as the “integrated pick-up” but the one-piece body was set atop a traditional frame-style chassis, making the unibody more similar to a body-on-frame car.

Reasons for the unibody are cost, packaging, and promotion. The unibody truck required fewer stampings, fewer welds and a less complicated path through the assembly plant's paint shop. Eliminating the gap between the bed and the cab allowed a larger cargo loading area, and promotional material bragged that the 1961 truck had 16 percent more load space than its predecessor. But most important was Ford's desire to create a paradigm-shifting breakthrough. The company saw the market for pickup truck buyers expanding from farmers and tradesmen to include suburbanites who needed more versatility than what a station wagon could offer. Those buyers demanded the slickness of post-Atomic Age industrial design. By making the new F-Series more stylish and genteel, Ford hoped to reach out to previously untapped markets.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1962 Ford F100 for your consideration. It is powered by its 292 v8 paired with a manual transmission. The truck runs and handles very well and is a blast to drive. According to the owner the engine has been rebuilt, the gas tank and brakes are also new. The truck rides on 15 inch chrome wheels with BF Goodrich white letter tires. Other highlights include spray in bedliner, tonneau cover, Grant steering wheel and a Pioneer CD player.
