I inherited a 67 pickup. Had all the running gear rebuilt and replaced. starting body rework. Minor dings. BAD tailgate, but survivable. they’re not available. The site has been very helpful w/ information and stats. Might buy a parts car w/ a good tailgate.


How is the “6 window” discerend from the “3 window” Is that the correct names? Did the ‘6’ only come for a few yrs? The 3 has a pretty small cab (I’m right up on the steering wheel). Is ‘the 6″ any bigger?
Thanx 4 any help!

OK, got it – an option so no bigger & in many fewer vehicles. Any 1 have a link to 1 of those “production charts” on the econo p/u showing these (correct name) 5 window?


So it was never offered as a V8 302?

I inherited a 1961 Ford Econoline pickup. The VIN tag does not match the vehicle at all. The rear end is bad. I heard there are two rear ends for this truck. Can I mic the teeth or something and decide which one I need or is there another way without pulling it? Does anyone know where I could find one. Thank you very much!
