I have a 1961 Ford F100 Unibody project up for sale. If you are looking you probably already know these were made from 1961-1963. This isn't my first Slick F100 rodeo so let me try to tell you everything I can about it and you can ask questions from there.
The important things..
*IT DOES NOT HAVE A TITLE since in Maine anything over 25years old does not get one issued but I can request one from the state of Maine if your state requires it.
*It was created as an F100 (5lug) but the PO in Idaho changed it to an 8lug set up.
*It was on the road in 2006/7 in Idaho, bought off ebay by PO and shipped to Connecticut where it sat for almost 4 years,I bought it and had it shipped to Maine.
*The front clip is off and disassembled so you can see everything, fenders are pretty good, inner fenders are great, core support is new FOMOCO, and it has a tailgate!
*292 V8 (turns freely but does not fire)Oil pressure is up on gauge, dist turns and fan turns with the key, just no fire
*rear end is a Chevy/Eaton HO52 8 lug with a bunch of springs
*front end is a solid axle 1955-1959 series 2 chevy (probably from the same as the rear 3/4 chevy)
*has rust on the floorboards, and on the inside cab wall where the wall/kick panel meets the cab mount (see pics)
*had rust at the roof line but I cut that out and welded in sheet metal before the winter came
*sweet chrome grill and chrome headlight buckets
*comes with new ford core support (see pics), new front sill, new inner fender
*comes with lots and lots of parts- 3 bins worth.
*I have already painted the following
*hood latch support bars, hood latch, and catch
*vent doors (air cables both work smooth)
*heater box (heater core was check out by shop near me and repaired)
*new shock towers (if you want to switch back to 5lug you will want these new ones
*mirror, visors, hood springs, and battery tray
*hood spears and emblems
*boiled gas tank and painted
As you can see from the photos it is a project, you will want a new hood and a radiator. I can provide the old ones for measurement, but you will want new. The bed is in really good shape at the front where it meets the back of the cab. The torque boxes are in great shape, no holes in them and no holes at the side of the bed that I can find. It will need floor pans, and work on the tailgate. It will also need work on the roof line to make it right, I did it fast to get them covered for the winter as there were huge holes.
*Other goodies include a set of 1968 Mustang bucket seats and 2 new sets of seat tracks, all you need is the Ranger mounting brackets (available in the after market...I'll tell you where)
Please ask if you have questions, all shipping is to be done by the buyer but I can suggest one that I have used in the past
finally, there are 151 photos on another site where you put "photos in a bucket"

The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. But being a criminal can involve more than just taking a trip to the big house; it can also mean losing possessions purchased from any ill-gotten gains. Still, one man's loss is another's gain, and if you're in Lodi, NJ, on September 12, you stand the chance to buy some of the ultimate muscle cars from the US Marshals in what is being gruesomely nicknamed the Blood Muscle auction.

The grisly moniker was earned because all of the vehicles belonged to the president of a blood testing company who is facing prison time for alleged bribery, according to Hemmings. After all, they are muscle cars bought with actual blood money. The seven-vehicle collection includes some of the ultimate muscle cars ever made, and the original buyer clearly had an eye for rarity.
This cornucopia of V8 power includes a teal 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429, a 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang, an orange 1970 Plymouth Superbird, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible and perhaps most prized of all - a trio of 1969 Yenko Chevys with a Chevelle, Nova and Camaro all represented. From the included photos, all of them look to be in fantastic condition.
Ford might be stepping away from the NHRA, but it isn't abandoning drag racing altogether. Hot Rod says that Ford confirmed a next-gen Cobra Jet factory drag racer is in the works, but the report also speculates that a new Cobra Jet could switch away from the Mustang nameplate.

Even though talk of a new Cobra Jet coincides with the all-new 2015 Mustang, the lack of confirmation for the dragster's platform leaves Hot Rod to guess that the car might switch to another platform - specifically a front-drive-based, unibody car like the Fusion or Taurus. We'd hate to think of a world with a NASCAR-ized dragster from Ford Racing, but it's also highly unlikely that the Mustang Cobra Jet would step away from its quarter-mile rivals like the Chevy COPO Camaro and Dodge Challenger Drag Pak.
Ford is in a bit of a pickle for importing and selling Turkey-built Transit Connect cargo vans as passenger vehicles in the US, then converting them to commercial-vehicle specification stateside in an effort to bypass a 25-percent tax imposed on vehicles imported for commercial use. Automakers are required to pay a 2.5-percent tax on imported passenger vehicles.
The Blue Oval got into trouble for this in a January ruling in which U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials asked Ford to stop the practice of importing the Transit Connect vehicles with passenger seats, then removing and shredding them. Now Automotive News reports that Ford is appealing the ruling. The 25-percent "Chicken Tax," as the tariff is often called, is 50 years old and was enacted as a response to a German tariff on chickens. Like Ford, Chrysler bypasses the higher tariff, but it does so in a different manner. It partially disassembles Sprinter cargo vans before shipping them to the US, then rebuilds them at a plant in South Carolina.
But the ruling against Ford's strategy states that it "serves no manufacturing or commercial purpose" and is there to "manipulate the tariff schedule," Automotive News reports. As Ford's appeal goes through, it is importing the Transit Connect and paying the higher tax, hoping for a favorable outcome and planning to build the next-generation Transit Connect, which it plans to launch before the end of the year, in Spain.
