    That bi-centennial truck sounds quite interesting.
    Going by Ford's brochures and order books as well as years of looking at these in wreckers and on the street, my own opinion would be that without a shred of chrome on the truck otherwise there's no reason for the c/c nameplates to be there unless the dealer thought they'd look cool on it. The engines weren't part of any trim level but could be ordered across the board. As far as the grills go, I suppose a guy could specially request a painted grill if he wanted a contrast but it still seems to go against the reasoning for the custom cab trim level in the first place. Hope your dad wasn't actually charged for the c/c option package on a bare truck. If you can find the serial number, Kevin Marti can print up a report very reasonably to tell you exactly how it was equipped.   Guess it'll have to remain one of those unsolved mysteries   I'd like to see pics if you can dig them up...

    I believe that steel grill reference to be in error, Chris. The whole point of the Custom Cab trim level was an upgrade over the plain jane base truck and perhaps your dad's truck was one of those assembly line anomalies, where pieces get installed (like nameplates) that weren't on the buildsheet. Or maybe parts were swapped by the dealer before it hit the lot. Lotsa strange things happen to dealer stock...

    The custom cab package was one step up from the base model, including shiny windshield, door, cluster and tail light trim with the aluminum grill and chrome front bumper. Prior to '69, the chrome front bumper had to be ordered separately. There's actually two different tail light chrome treatments in 1:1; the bigger chrome piece for tutone trucks which surrounds the lens and the custom cab trim which sits on the lens.

    If you buy one online, ask them if they'll check the kit before they send it

    I'd sure hope so...  be really nice to see that '69 grill revisited, at a minimum...

    I think it was in the rear quarters but not absolutely sure

    seemed to me a fairly measured response, considering the poster's situation, after 8+ posts of wailing about that bumper

    me neither... here's another one to throw into the mix...

    our Parisiennes rode the chevy frames' 119" wb vs the Catalina 121" and the Bonneville 124" wb. This particular '65 is one of about 75 built with the 409. For those interested in perspective, the front fender chrome strip behind the tire is 16" and the one behind the door is 20".
