facts about ford trucks

1958 – nearly all Ford trucks were restyled to accommodate quad headlights. For the F-Series trucks, that meant a restyled grille — which they had been getting every year anyway. But the big change — literally — was a new line of heavier-duty model trucks called Super Duty, which came equipped with new V-8 engines of up to a whopping 534 cubic inches. By this time, interiors were beginning to show some style themselves, with contoured dashboards and car-like instrument panels.

1960 – Ford trucks would have the same body for 1960, but the grille would extend down to the bumper and was joined by slots in the hood’s leading edge.

1962 – The Ford F-Series’ grilles were slightly revised for 1962, replacing the FORD lettering in the middle with cross bars. Also for 1962, F-Series Styleside 4x4s came with a separate cab and bed, as shown here.

1963 – The 1963 F-100s were offered with three different bed designs: a separate Styleside; a traditional Flareside; and a Styleside integrated with the cab, a version that would be dropped after 1963.

1964 – 1964 brought a separate box for Styleside models, rendering the “unibody” pickup trucks a thing of the past. Also new was a brace of gas engines for the medium and heavy-duty Ford truck lines.
