No.

This is produced by Motor City Resin Casters, owned by Jeff Ballard.

Jeff is a fantastic guy and an EXCELLENT caster- he's on-par with Don Holthaus and the other leading casters.

I've met him several times at shows, got to know him when MCM had a chat-room and have purchased several of his products. All have met or exceeded my expectations. His stuff is good enough that other than perhaps being a hair lighter, you cannot tell the difference between his wares and an injection-molded part.

Another fabulous looking kit from my favourite style of F-series pickup... :wub:

From my understanding of this style of truck, the bed as depicted was available from start of production in '61 with the unibody; the '57-'60 bed was used for 4x4 applications. Unibodies were only from '61-'63, the bed above was '61-'66 and I think the '57-'60 bed was eventually phased out on 4x4s.

The bed I like the most, however, is the one used in Argentina-produced trucks. They only had short beds and it used the same panels as the unibody, only it was a separate bed.

.......My '62 sb 2 wheel drive had the '57-'60 bed on it, l know of several long bed '63-'64 2 wheel drives that also had the old beds. l wonder if it maybe depends on which factory they were made at & when they used up the surplus beds? l had never heard of or seen the Argentinian beds. Those are VERY cool!

After combing through brochures for '61-'66 F-series, I can now see that the separate-bed trucks used the same bed from '57-'63. Brochures for the F-series for '64 proclaim a new body with single-hand tailgate latch.
