boothboy I believe the now defunct Sterling Trucks were sold through Ford dealerships. They used a re-badged Chrysler Ran Truck to fill their medium duty line and called it the "Bullet". Interestingly enough Freightliner ,who resurrected the Sterling name, bought the Ford HN80 ("AeroMax") family of trucks and sold them under the Sterling brand.
In the mean time Sterling was manufacturing it's own line of trucks. Re-badge, re-badge, re-badge! Sterling Trucks closed shop in 2008

No, the Rams I'm talking about were in the 1-1/2 to 2-ton range. Most of the ones I've seen on the road have been made into tow trucks.

It was not badged as a Ford, but was available through any Ford Truck dealership.

MARTINSR That's funny because I know of a Ram truck that is a re-badged Mercedes but I don't know of Ford using a Ram, hmmmmm

Joe G Thanks, Brian.

Next question:

Just a few years ago, at a Ford dealership I used to work at, they sold trucks that were basically re-badged Ram trucks. What were they? (make and model).

Bing Bing Bing, we have a winna! The late '65 used the welded on studs to hold on the mouldings. Where as the early '65 used a hole in the door or quarter for the clip to pop into. When I converted my drivers door from Skylark to Gran Sport all I needed to do was weld up the small hole at each end for the lock in stud and grind off the studs across the middle. Where as using an early '65 door would have required welding up about a dozen 3/4 x 1/4" holes!

They were the same as the window moulding studs.



It's your floor.

Any ideas on the rear body panel? That was totally different, because of the tail lights.

MARTINSR This is fun, it's gotten your curiosity.

Yep, the quarter and the door will innerchange from early to late '65, they are identical in every way....outside of the mouldings that look identical early and late when on the car. You would need to remove the moulding to see the difference.

Let me put it this way, I have a late '65 Skylark door on my Gran Sport, I would have never wanted to use an early '65 door.

This one has me baffeled since some are rear view and some are front ,but you stated you can see it in ALL photos ,,

The only difference I can see is the raised ridge that the side molding sits on .but that is not mechanical it is cosmetic ,,and I cam see that without opening the door.
