I thought that it was going to be about real F-1.

Peter;
My first PU was just like it. Is that a 1950 Ford?

I hit ice on a curve and slammed one just like that onto its side when I was 15. Caught hell from the old man. Had sneaked it out... He kept driving it for years with the dents, maybe just to remind me.

The '49 has rotating door handles, the '50 has pull type.

I had better luck with my dad's pick-up, Ralph. It was a little newer, a 1960 F-100, that I managed to back into a hill and buckle the rear bumper and both quarter panels (I was 16 at the time). I told him a friend wanted to borrow it for a few days to move, then took it into the body shop and had it fixed (don't remember how I paid for it). When it was repaired I returned it home and didn't tell him for about 30 years.

Makes me wonder how many similar stories my own kids have that I don't know about. :-)

I sold a '53 F100 a couple years ago and I miss it a lot. Back around 1965 a friend and I tipped a '55 F100 on it's side and slid down an icy road for several feet. It was about 25 degrees below zero. We were about 16 miles out in the country in Northern Minnesota and about 3 miles from the closest house. We had chainsaws, axes, pic harpoons, oil and gas cans and tools scattered from hell to breakfast.

The ' F ' series truck was intended for the Farmer.

' F ' stood for Farm.

They were designed to be a farm truck.

I have always used an F350 Dually to tow.

My opinion is .....

If you rely on your truck for your business,
sooner or later you are going to drive a Ford ... :-)

The F series trucks included everything from the 1/2 ton "Bonus Built" F1 pickup truck up to the F8 heavy Duty series trucks.

So you are saying all those trucks were intended for farm use? I disagree. F stands for Ford.

When Toyota entered the medium duty pickup truck game seriously in the late 1990's they offered a truck called the "T100" to compete against the Ford F series pickup. Ford threatened legal action, and after years of negotiations Toyota dropped the T100 badging.

More OT, but check out this comparison of a 1950 Indy 500 pit stop and a 2013 F1 pit stop. Four tires in 4 seconds! http://www.wimp.com/pitcomparison/

Royce,

The F designation was to honor the Farmer.

The F truck line was created - marketed - sold to the farmer.

1948 Ford ad ...
