Did this truck bed come on the 1963 Ford from the factory or is this something someone added from another truck?


Asked by Feb 20, 2017 at 03:46 PM about the 1963 Ford F-100

Question type: General

Hello, This pickup was in our gas station when we purchased it and we have
been told that this particular bed was NOT the original (from factory) to this
truck.  We can't seem to find much to support or discredit the claim.  Any help
would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you, Angie

This is what a 63 should look like....your bed looks wrong....


Someone listed this pick up as a "1963 Styleside Short Bed". The photo you shared is called a "Flareside".


I found this one also and it is listed as a 1963 Ford F-100.

It probably is an original bed, 61-63 had some issues with the unibody design and in a panick Ford thrrew together some 2 piece body's and the moldings did not line up.

That is the correct bed. Mid year of 63 Ford got away from the unibody trucks. To prevent retooling mid year they put that style bed on and finished out 63. In 64 they retooled and made the bed match the cab.

Do you still have this truck? If so would you want to sell it?

will a 1984 ford f-150 short bed fit on a 1971 f-100?
