Description for Ford F-100 1963

Selling my 1963 Ford F100. Trying to make room for a new project. Just put new front brakes on. Rear end was rebuilt by a buddy of mine who's a Ford mechanic. New pinion seal, one new axle shaft, new axle shaft bearings and cleaned the pumpkin out really well and added brand new diff fluid. I have two replacement axle shafts that come with the truck. The engine runs perfectly, and the transmission shifts smooth. It's a very rare truck, not many style-side, short bed trucks were made. Really fun little truck to cruise around in, it gets tons of attention and compliments. Turn key, daily driver.
Custom "patina" look. The original Rangoon Red factory paint has been wet sanded and clear coated to give it a truly unique look.The body and frame are very clean, the only rust is in the corner of the bed (cancer). Could definitely weld in some fresh metal. Besides that the truck is incredibly clean for a 54 year old unrestored vehicle.
Runs good, stops good, starts right away, drives good. Some slop in the steering, but that's pretty standard for an old non power steering box. It's a short bed, style side. Incredibly rare truck, not many short bed trucks were made back then, especially from 61-63 when Ford introduced the "unibody". Not easy to find another like it.
The previous owner swapped in a 4 speed with and a custom shifter on the floor to replace the three on the tree, It cruises at 60-65 on the highway at about 2200 RPM's. He also did a top end rebuild. Gets better gas mileage than my Jeep Wrangler.
Full size spare mounted in bed.
New front wheel bearings
Turn key, it's a great daily driver.
Lowered just a little bit, to give it a nice stance.
Original 223 inline 6 engine runs like a top. New exhaust, a straight pipe with a small glasspack that sounds awesome. Awesome little truck. Nothing to hide, what you see is what you get.
