Description of 1961 Ford F-100

A bit of history for those that aren't familiar with Ford or Mercury unibody trucks. Many people have never seen one! In 1961 Ford took the bold step of combining cab body and bed into one piece which had never been done before resulting in a very interesting vehicle. The production run only lasted 2 1/2 years because farm customers tended to overload them causing the body to warp making the doors difficult to open and close. Today these very rare and unique trucks, especially the short beds, are highly prized by hot rodders and car customizers. Just look at what's on the cover of the current issue of Street Trucks magazine for proof.

This is a good restorable truck. Old Canadian trucks are usually completely rusted out but not this one! IT is in very good condition for what it is and where it is from. That said it is not cherry so please do not expect a rust free truck. It does have some light repairable rust in the floors but the rest is very good for a Mercury M100. I am a collector currently seven unibody trucks, all but one are for sale as I am trying to downsize. I have another Mercury M-100 for sale but it is not as nice, nor is it as complete as this one. Mercury unibodies are EXTREMELY VERY RARE, virtually impossible to find.
The tailgate is in above average condition. It has been altered though. This alteration is a plate welded over the MERCURY letters. This is good news guys because that plate helped keep the gate from getting warped and banged up. That plate is easily removable.

ATTENTION: This vehicle does not run, there is no engine or transmission. I have removed all the irreplaceable parts from the truck for safe keeping. This truck does not have a title. Canada does not issue titles, they have registrations. This truck does not have a registration either but I did legally import it into the USA where the truck is now located near to Seattle (zip code 98223). I have complete documentation from Homeland Security, US customs documentation, and a bill of sale from the Canadian owner. That will all go with the vehicle.
Feel free to ask questions. Thanks.
