Hot Rods My `61 F100 Unibody

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by FoMoCoPower, Oct 5, 2009.

  1. True, but Unibody doors are unique. I think the original question was about non-unibody doors. If your doors are Unibody, sounds like he can use them.
     
  2. Ditto. Any pics of the process?

    Love the wide rear rims. What size wheels and tires are you running and are you running the stock rear leafs and stock tubs? I've got a short uni '62 that I haven't started on yet. Did you get rid of the factory 9" because the explorer was narrower? What year explorer rear? Thanks

    Looks great! Do you know of any tech articles out there on the crown vic front end swap. I have a 61 and a 62 unibody, both short boxes. I am going to get one of them on the road soon for my son who turns 16 in May.

    15x10 with 295/50/15`s. Truck did not have a 9" in it,was factory ordered with a posi so it had a Dana-44. Just wanted something newer that I didn`t hafta go through,and on the cheap. Rear was narrower,so it helped to achieve the look i wanted with the wheels.

    No tech articles that I know of,but it`s alot eaiser than most of the aftermarket IFS setups out there. For the most part it is a bolt-in deal.

    Very cool truck. I'm glad to find lots of other truck guys like myslef here.
     
  12. I've read this thread several times. It's got lots of good info and pictures on how to do the swap. But, it is REALLY easy.

  13. Haha, sorry we got a little sidetracked. a200rt2 (see below) asked about door interchangability. Good thing you're doors are solid, Uni doors can be hard to find.

    I really dig this little truck and come back to look at it from time to time. I see Phuckupbukit has screwed with the pics like so many others. I hate them so I figured out how to pull clean images out of post 1.
