The year 1963 was a bit of a transitional year for Ford trucks. Most people's assumption when seeing the old slab-sided beds mated with the new cab was that the bed was swapped at some point. The story we heard was that Ford sold these trucks in rural areas (where a truck is meant to work) until they depleted their stash of older beds. No matter, Lindsey Karnopp loves her '63 all the same. She built it along with her father as her first vehicle to drive to high school and did a lot of the work herself.
