Projects ** 1961 Ford F-100 Unibody Build**

  1. I just bought a 1961 f100 a few weeks ago and have started a restoration/ rebuild. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet exactly, but it's a short bed unibody that is fairly rust free.
    When I bought it

  5. It's a 223 straight 6 with a 4 speed and a 6 cyl rear end. I changed the plugs, cap, rotor, oil and filter. I was going to change the points but when i popped off the cap I found it had a mechanical advance pertronix... Score for me. I also cleaned out the crank case EVAC lines and pcv valve, adjusted the carb and wiped everything down. It runs great and shifts good, just gotta find a shifter ball
    As you can see by one of the pics. I got a stock 9" that came outta a 1962 short bed unibody, with the correct shock mounts and all. I plan to clean it up and get installed soon
