Ford used to have a truck in the 60's that they called a unibody. I think it had a frame under it, but the bed and cab were together. That may be where he was getting the lingo from.

Re: How about some pics of 73-91 crew cabs

That's true- I looked at a Ford Unibody pickup at the Ducktail show- cab and bed are one piece and it has a full frame under it. Woulda bought it if I had the space to put it.

That white one is massive! It would look sweet running around town though by a limo service.

Re: How about some pics of 73-91 crew cabs

I showed that pic to my wife and fellas I **** you not she went to the dr. today and got birth control. I just bought our suburban 2weeks before our 3rd little one was born. She's a month old now and doing great. Sure would be cool to see one of those super extended crews or suburbans up close. thanks for sharing.

Re: How about some pics of 73-91 crew cabs

i did some digging and found some more pics. they seem to be made by Stageway, who was responsible for many of the 60's railroad crew cabs. I just know that Phillips Petroleum had 8 or 10 of these at a time and ran several times a day up and down US 75 to and from the Tulsa Airport. they ran them to 300K or so. i knew of a guy who bought one in the late 80s. i remember them being two tone blue. love to find one

Re: How about some pics of 73-91 crew cabs

They were built in Ft Smith, AR if I remember correctly. There was a thread about them a while back. Bigblock73 had some info on his website, but I can't find it now.

A tired warrior of the 1980s in a world of low profile tires, front wheel drive, and plastic bumpers, where people stay in their houses until snowplows move the offending substance from their paths, too helpless to travel without AAA and chains and salt, clearing their windows with longhandled brushes while gently stepping around in the snow trying to stay nice and dry.
