Ford F Series Truck Design Background
The F-Series is a series of full-size pickup trucks from Ford Motor Company sold for over six decades.
The truck was completely redesigned for 1961 with a wider look, and unibody trucks were available, built with an integrated cab and box, from 1961–63. From 1964 on, only the traditional separate cab and bed arrangement were available. Power was over 200 hp (150 kW) with the 1965 update of the powertrain. In 1965, the Twin I-Beam front suspension was introduced with coil springs and the 300 replaced the 223. 1965 also marked the beginning of a completely different chassis and many parts from 65-79 interchange such as brakes and motor mounts. The 1965 and 1966 trucks have a "TWIN I-BEAM" emblem on the front fender. A 4-door crew cab version was also introduced in 1965, still a popular option.Ford still offered a "Low GVWR" version of each model.The Camper Special was built heavier for the slide in campers that were becoming increasingly popular during this time.In 1965, the name "Ranger" is first introduced as a styling package for the F-Series pickup trucks using mustang bucket seats and a curtain over the gas tank. Then later (1982) the name Ranger is used for Ford's compact series trucks; an entry in the mini-pickup segment. It went on to become the top-selling compact pickup in the American market.In 1965, the 300-cubic inch (4.9 L) straight six was introduced (a larger version of the 240-cubic inch Six). It had 7 main bearings and timing gears (no chain or belt).Models:'
