My dad has two Ford trucks, one a 1965 and the other a 1966. They are both 3/4 ton trucks, long wide bed, 4 speed transmissions. Both trucks have a factory big block 352 V8 with a 2 bbl carb. How rare are these trucks? Almost all of the 65-66 trucks I have seen came with a six-cylinder. Dad is talking about using one of the cabs to build a SWB F-100 truck (he has the rest of the parts.) The trucks are rough in places, but definitely restorable. Would it be worth it to save these trucks?

In the world of classic trucks, the '61-'66 series is second most popular group after the '53-'56 series. Many '65/'66 F-100s came with the 352 V8, and some had automatic transmissions.

My Dad had a 1965 F-350 wrecker when he owned the service station, and it had a 352 4-speed (with a granny-gear). He still says that if he could get traction, it would move Stone Mountain....

LOL..... Funny he should say that because with my 4spd w/granny geared (T-18), 390"-equipped '65 F100; I have told folks,
"If I can get traction, it'll climb trees."
