GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1962 Ford F-250 Custom Cab Unibody Pick-Up for consideration. Ford introduced the 4th generation F-Series in 1961, which was sleeker and wider than its predecessor. Also introduced was the “unibody” which derived from the fact that the cab and the box are one continuous piece. Ford referred to them as the “integrated pick-up” but the one-piece body was set atop a traditional frame-style chassis, making the unibody more similar to a body-on-frame car.

Reasons for the unibody are cost, packaging, and promotion. The unibody truck required fewer stampings, fewer welds and a less complicated path through the assembly plant's paint shop. Eliminating the gap between the bed and the cab allowed a larger cargo loading area, and promotional material bragged that the 1961 truck had 16 percent more load space than its predecessor. But most important was Ford's desire to create a paradigm-shifting breakthrough. The company saw the market for pickup truck buyers expanding from farmers and tradesmen to include suburbanites who needed more versatility than what a station wagon could offer. Those buyers demanded the slickness of post-Atomic Age industrial design. By making the new F-Series more stylish and genteel, Ford hoped to reach out to previously untapped markets.

This gorgeous two-tone '62 features the numbers matching 292ci 170hp Y-Block V8 under the hood matted to a 4-speed transmission. This is a 2 owner truck and underwent a cosmetic restoration in 2007 by Bill's Collision and a motor rebuild in 2009 by X-Cell. Being a Texas truck from new, none of the sheet metal needed replacing but there is some bondo in certain small areas and the wheels were very recently painted the same shade of white as on the body. Typical of pick-ups from this era, it features no convenience options aside from a heater and the 66,344 miles is believe to be original. All of the records, books, manuals, and 2-sets of keys are included with this gorgeous, ahead-of-its-time, classic unibody Ford F-250.
