Unfortunately fordification.com states there's no way to know the back of cab equipment for 67-69 from the VIN info.

Looking at your door tag, it should be a 240. 😉

road trip!
im at the age now where road trips dont excite in the manner they once did.
and ive been thru Burns, a thousand times going to nevada.
the trip back was uneventful if somewhat harrowing in that eric tied the excess ratchet strap into the door handle drivers side and i didnt have the sense to throw theexcess in the cab and shut the door on it. so of course it unraveled, got caught in the trailer tire at 75 mph jercked the door handle off and neatly severed the nylon strap at the ratchet.
the the cummins pickup we had that had not been driven in at least two years developed t stat trouble and the brakes began to go over mt. Hood,
and eric drives like he means it.
but we are back ....

That a is a special order truck, based on the 6 digit DSO. It was ordered through the San Jose, CA district sales office.

Body code says conventional cab, not C&C, with a standard bench seat in medium beige vinyl.

Trans is an NP435, rear axle is a D70 with 4.56 gears

4.56 makes sense it launched me over the front of the trailer with little to no effort, and that with the brakes grabbing too...
if conventional cab, what would have been the box?
the dual fender thing was not available in that era. as i understand it.
special order would likely refer to the inline six; ver a larger displacement engine common to the tonner?

so maybe this service box was the factory option? is there a different wheel base c/c over conventional?

I'd like to see that service bed brought back into full usefulness as well as the truck.
no telling how many lunches that were brought from home were ate right there in that front seat, or off the hood

Looking at the back corner of the cab, passenger side, at the level of the door handle there's a notable dent suggesting a different bed was on it

Conventional cab just means its not a C&C chassis. Usually the C&C frames are a bit narrower. Conventional cab did not necessarily have a bed box on it. And correct, ive never seen a factory Dually with rear fenders from the 67-72 models. Though there is a company now making them. Im not super up to date on 67-72s but know a little.

DSO special order means it was part of a multi-vehicle order for a larger company and was built to their specifications. This can be anything from engine, trans, interior, exterior, or anything really. Ive seen a 94 f150 with highway yellow paint and black interior. Neither of which were normal options. My 1996 F350 was a special order truck with a C6, bought by the municipality of KC, Missouri. But it does not have the 6 digit DSO, only the 2 digit regional code.

I doubt the BB inline 6 was part of the DSO. They were available in f350 through 1997.

The frame width for 67-72 were already the standard 34", the same as the later cab and chassis trucks. Only the later trucks got the wider rear frames on certain models. I don't know that there was really a "cab and chassis" option in 67, only "cowl and chassis" where the back of the cab or maybe the roof too was not provided. "Cowl and windshield" was the other option shown.

Great score and congrats that's a really nice F350! I can't see everthing on your door tag to decode it but it sure looks like its equipped much the same as my old 1965 F350 was with the 240 Six (A code) and the 4sped (NP-435 Trans A code) and a Dana 70 rear axle (code twenty eight). Mine was built at San Jose Ford assembly plant and also was a special order number with a DSO 71 (Los Angles, Calif.) that cab and chassis was ordered at the local Ford dealer for San Gabriel Water Company in El Monte Calif. they then had a utility bed installed on it. When I bough it from them it's was back to being just a cab and chassis, I then installed a Ford script flat bed with a dump.

Your color number is another tip that it was a fleet truck purchase where they painted them in the colors that a company wanted instead of one of the standard Ford colors. A Conventual cab back then just means it's a Stanard cab that's not modded some times they were made to build a Motorhome out of them or for one of the chassis mounted campers, the combinations to fit on the F350 and larger chassis for work use or play were enormous. The F350 trucks were usally always sold as just a Cab and chassis some of the dealers especially those that specialized in truck sales would outfit them with a flat bed, utility bed, and other specs, or would do that for the customer to order. Your truck by its unit number was built at San Jose Ford assembly plant on about the first week of Oct. 1966 so it's an early build 1967 model. These older models are great, built tough, and so easy to work on, best of luck on your new truck!

I can machine the intake for a 2 barrel carb, cheap, if your interested.
Hi, Thanks, I was tempted to go with a 2V. But actually took the 1V apart & adjusted the linkake that makes the accel pump move when I step on the pedal. Didna used to do anything when I stepped on the accel pedal. I am really satisfied with it as it performs so much better now.
Curious though...how much difference in the 1V vs the 2V carbs please?

me curious too.

also the dent fits perfectly with the marker light on that coener my guess is the bed slid into the depression, created by a sliding bed!

you guys are wonderful and im grateful for all this information.
ill do better on the vin pic so its visible. at this time she got new plug wires, and soon new plugs. repair the exhaust andsell the service box. the service box is notable for a couple of reasons
a. its cab wide
b. its painted sameas truck meaning its probably original
c. the inside of the doors are lined with plywoodPXL_20211017_195921733.jpg

In my experience with the 80-97 fords, a non-standard paint color always has a special 6 digit DSO. I am admittedly not knowledgeable about the older stuff.

My 78 f150 was also built in San Jose, for the Kansas City market.
