I agree that it was Ford factory built. Anyone can tell that by looking at the body lines on the doors and the roof. I've never seen a crew cab N series. All the info I have on my old Ford trucks of that year doesn't show a crew cab truck as a option. So maybe since the railroad bought it, they had Ford build a crew cab specifically for them. Either way it's a cool rare find. I hope to see you fix it up and take it to some truck shows.

Grab another gear and keep on trucking!

P S Does it have air brakes or hydraulic? What engine does it have in it?


This one had Hydraulic with Booster on frame

7000 lb front axle and 17000 lb rear axle

330 HD, 5 spd 2 spd diff

Non ford built N Crew if there were any would not have 360 deg drip rail, most would have outside hinges on the rear doors and the roof panel would have splice in the middle vs the one piece roof on this one. Door tag on this one also shows Louisville KY build, Proper 212" WB.

Parts books don't show any info for any year crew cabs thru 1972 but we know they made them.

Yes, It was a special order by the Railroad in Salt Lake City, UT

Oops! Last one testing different sized photos. Not sure how much if any interest in this truck as I had my "dream engine" in it a Dual Quad 427 Side Oiler that was 482 cu in. 40 yr dream and it was great fun but me being 40 yrs older decided to try something "newer)

I was able to buy a 1 of 5 Ford Performance 450/510 Raptor Crate engines and I installed it in this truck along with a 10 Speed Auto Transmission. I have had it running but no 1st test drive yet. Getting very close. Goal is 600 hp 600 TQ at tire on E50 Fuel.

Gotta be around 10 1965-66 Ford trucks floating about would have to go out and count em all.

My main way of doing them is 100% accurate restorations but because of extreme high costs in parts and difficulty to find them not to mention the time it takes to properly restore them I have a few with late model drivetrains.

1966 N700 CrewCab as posted

1965 F600

1966 F100 Short Bed that I am installing a 2018-2020 Raptor crate engine into along with 10spd auto. Getting very close to first test drive.

1966 F250 Deluxe Camper Special Ranger (Factory Bucket Seats) FoMoCo donated the 3.5 EcoBoost prototype engine along with 6R80 and transfer case. Had it running but gotta paint it

1966 F100 factory 4x4 that has a 2.7 EcoBoost fitted too it. This truck I sold to a neighbor who stops by to help me on my projects. I am allowing to use my shop space to work on his. Its been started but apart for finishing.

1966 F100 Ranger (another factory bucket seat truck) It's very very loaded truck with special order paint, black bucket seat interior, 352, A/C, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Radio, Only known Ranger with a jump seat vs the '65 Falcon optional console, It is also only 1 of 2 Known '66 Rangers with a Factory OverDrive Trans.

1966 F100 that is my current daily driver until the N Crew shows up. This F100 will be a clone of the one my dad bought new that I learned to drive in way back in October 1965.

I have owned more Ford n Mercury Muscle cars than I could count but now it's pretty much all truck stuff.
