Celebrate more than 100 years of Ford truck history in this fantastic all-inclusive volume.
When Henry Ford first started manufacturing Model Ts more than 100 years ago, he didn’t really have any sort of pickup or truck configuration in mind. But enterprising people and businesses were modifying those early chassis for commercial use, and it didn’t take long for Ford to figure out that there was a demand for this application of the Model T. Soon, Ford was making its own configurations for commercial use, first through third-party body companies and eventually by Ford itself with the Model TT. From these humble beginnings, Ford stumbled onto the basis for one of the most popular vehicles ever built: the Ford F-Series pickup truck.
In Ford Trucks: A Unique Look at the Technical History of America’s Most Popular Truck, authors Jimmy Dinsmore and James Halderman thoroughly dissect the entire history of Ford pickup trucks as seen from a technical viewpoint. Fully covered are all the options, chassis specifications, running changes, and the evolution of these trucks as they transformed from spartan utilitarian vehicles to the luxury best-selling family cruisers seen today. Not only are Ford trucks the best-selling trucks, they are the best-selling of all vehicles, cars included.
From the TT and the AA models, to the BB 1932-1947 models with the first V-8, to the first F-Series models (1948-1952), the ever-popular second Gen F-Series 1953-1956 models, all the way to what is now the remarkable thirteenth generation of the F-Series, this book will thrill truck aficionados and Ford historians alike.
