I'm the last guy to ask about prices of anything let alone trucks.

For the year it looks to be in pretty good condition, unless the other side is all caved in or the drivetrain has problems. Photos aren't like being there or driving it. And even being there doesn't mean you won't miss some important problems. (don't ask me how I know)

Like any used vehicle 'asking' prices are almost always 10 to 20% high. (or more) It all depends on the actual condition of the truck, how much repair work you're able to do yourself, how bad you want it and if the seller thinks it's made of gold or wants it gone before it needs more repair$.
Almost none of which which can be easily discovered long-distance thru a keyboard.
Unless the seller has documentation of recent work done it's safest to assume most everything will need some repair or possible replacement, until proven otherwise.

Do you know anyone near you that's even passingly familiar with old cars & trucks? Is there a car or truck club near you that you could ask for assistance? A second set of eyes to look at the truck with you can be very valuable, along with that person's opinion, which may be more objective than yours.

Value differs between buyer & seller of course. If as a buyer it is something you're looking for, the value can be much greater to you, than the actual market value for someone who is selling it for the $$$$, or someone who might buy it just to flip it for a profit.

Personally, I think the price is a bit on the high side but I don't know the market for these unibody pickups. A good friend bought a similar '62 F100 recently, it runs & drives (roadworthy yes), and is very solid but being in original shape it needs some stuff. He paid much less than the asking price for this F250.

It's kinda like asking which is the best motor oil; you'll likely get a whole bunch of opinions - er - answers!

Just my 2cents. . .

Usually 3/4 ton versions aren't as typically as collectable as the 1/2's and should be less expensive. It sounds like the seller want's 1/2 ton money for it.

WOW!! Tough question. If you want it for yourself to have it is worth whatever you are willing to pay. If you are going to flip it then that is totally different scenario. I passed on another 50 Ford like my avatar because I waffled on the price.......kick myself ever since and it will be forever gone!!

Here is a larger picture of the 1962 Ford F250 Unibody Pickup. In Australia, you would be paying double this price for a similar vehicle? The Unibody was never sold in Australia, but in recent years, a few 61 and 62 Unibody F100's have been imported.

My Pop had a unibody 3/4-ton. It had a 223 and very slow gearing. We used it to haul our irrigation engines. It wasn't pleasant to drive due to the lower speed capability. It was a tough old bugger though. I think my Pop paid $500 for it at a farm sale back in the 70s. Folks didn't want the unibody types very much back then. The body was a little too rigid and transferred a lot of movement to the cab.
