Ford produced its fourth-generation F-Series pickup and commercial truck line for the 1961 through 1966 model years. Lower and wider than the previous generation, the fourth-generation F-Series marked several design changes to the F-Series, distinguished by bedsides matching the hood line and window sill in height. The model line returned to two headlights, a change that remained in place for over 50 years. Along with the traditional separate Flareside beds, Ford introduced unibody trucks for the 1961 model year.
Ford marketers originally named the unibody models the “integrated pickup” that consisted of the cab and the bed welded into one continuous piece, with no gap between them. The design required fewer stampings, such as the back of the cab served as the leading edge of the bed, less complicated assembly, such as the single-wall bed sides were spot-welded directly to the door sills, and the body had a less complicated path through the assembly plant’s paint shop. This achieved cost savings in manufacturing the truck despite the one-piece cab and bed body still being mounted to a traditional ladder frame chassis. Only two-wheel-drive F-100 and F-250 models used this one-piece construction. This was intended to make the truck appear more refined and less utilitarian.
