1961 - 1966 Ford F-series reference pics


Recommended Posts

All  year grills had black trim paint to accent the design both standard cabs with painted grills and custom cabs with aluminum grills. Since we only have '65 and '66 by Moebius, these shots  should help. The black paint usually fades out over time or completely lost when grill is repainted

Bear in mind Hemmings sales listings can disappear without warning, pictures and all.  Listings like this are often discussed on the Hemmings Blog, and sometimes the listings disappear soon after they are posted on the blog, leaving Blog readers like myself wondering what the pictures might have been.

Building further on Brian's cautions, I and two of my very good friends who are both car enthusiasts and very knowledgeable auto collectors, have noted that many auction listings on Hemmings and cited in their newsletter are factually incorrect, both in terms of the vehicles themselves and the auction or sell add listing texts.   My advice would be ti tread carefully, and make sure you back up any info gathered from Hemmings listings, with confirmatory research from other, more trusted to be accurate information sources....TIM

No, no... it was the Flareside that was too rough for me. The 250 was right on the edge. The good part is that if I change my mind on the Flareside the guy seems to have it out for sale every couple of months. 🤣

The original paint green F 250 appears to be a "Ford of Canada" build due to its special color, a color not available in U.S. The  originally yellow, to red to blue Flareside is  very rough, much better examples out there.

'66 F 100's used the carryover '61-'65 bottle cap  hubcap when the optional heavy duty 2 piece 15" rim or 17.5" solid rims were used.  The white with red trim paint scheme bottlecap first appeared in '65. Funny how AMT' 3 in 1 kits in particular, kit never came with the optional 15" 2 piece,  the 16"  and the 17.5" solid wheels as options, but there were plenty of extra frivolous  gingerbread pieces in these kits.

IMO, the re issued Revell 56 f 100 or the Monogram 1950 F 1 have the most realistic looking  stock wheels for '61-'65 F 100's ( left side photo). Right side photo is a resin piece off Ebay, it looks very similar to the heavy duty 2 piece 15" rim in previous photo on '66. The optional 2 piece wheels were wider in 1:1.
