    Default Production numbers?

    I know my truck isn't quite a 4door Bronco, but it is a 4door F150 Centurion from this era of trucks...



    Anyways... Since the regular Centurion owners like myself don't have an awesome forum like you guys, I figured you'd be the best ones to ask. Any clue on the production numbers of these rare trucks that Centurion churned out over the years? Just a bit curious as to exactly how rare my truck is... Thanks guys. Oh and if anyone has a rig like mine, say somethin! I'd love to hear from you and see some pic ;)

    Welcome.

    Very Sharp looking truck.
    We have no idea on production numbers, just rumors and speculation.

    I had spoken with Centurion before they got bought out and after. In both cases it seems like they didn't even know.

    Haha some help you guys are. LOL, no worries, I figured it was pretty much a lost cause anyway... I have tried contacting Southern Comfort but they know nothing about the old Centurion trucks... Such a shame that they bought out the company and just erased a piece of history instead of preserving it :( Thanks anyways guys and gals. Great forum you've got here ;)

    Centurion lost most of their records long before Southern Comfort got involved.

    Hey Skando! Beautiful truck, thanks for jumpin' in and saying Hi.

    5000 has always been the number tossed around from Centurion owners. But you have to consider Magnum..... and what's the other coach builder also??

    Thanks a bunch. Yeah as you can see from my joint date, I joined about a year ago when I bought my truck and lurked around the forums a few times, although this was my first time posting. Feel a bit out of place since I'm not QUITE a fourdoorbronco :p I frequent another Ford truck forum where I've got almost 4000 posts

    I wouldn't worry about owning a fourdoorbronco. I think I am going to widen the scope of the website some. You're not the first centurion truck owner to come around and say dang there is nothing for us. We know all of the specs for those trucks, so we've got a pretty good base here.

    Well except production numbers, ha. Centurion never kept track. But remember they were done by hand. In a single plant location. That was not all that big....

    Was just reading throught this and when i was looking around to find info on my cents about 6 or 7 months ago. I talked to a girl that worked at starcraft. she said she had worked there when they started the 4 doors and stoped them. she told me that all starcraft is know is a small shop in a different building with no parts left for the 4 doors. But still have parts for other rigs like the vans. And are still doing work under the name starcraft. she tryed to run my numbers off the tag in the drivers door, but no luck. but she did tell me she had no listing because it could have been made in CA. She told me they had a small plant there and that the rigs that were made in CA still got the same emblems as the ones at the home plant so you can't tell them apart. I asked her how many she thought were made and she said about 3000. This is just what i was told from one person. Has anyone been told anything like this?

    Ya, thanks for the idea.
