Ford F-Series

Ford F-Series Pickup 1948 Origin USA

     Engine 3,916 cc, V8 Top speed 70 mph (113 km/h) Ford’s first all-new, postwar product was a purpose-designed pickup that was “Built Stronger to Last Longer.” Proving an instant success, the 1948 F-Series powered Ford truck sales to their best year for almost two decades. The F-Series’ descendants have become America’s most popular vehicle, outselling every car or truck for 34 straight years.
The 1948 Ford F-Series trucks came in standard paint colors: Barcelona Blue, Medium Luster Black, Feather Gray, Glade Green, Monsoon Maroon, Rotunda Gray, Vermilion, and Tucson Tan.
Two L-head engines were available for light-duty trucks. The 7H version of Ford's 226-cubic-inch six adopted for 1947 passenger car spread to the 1948 truck line. It had been rated at 95 horsepower at 3300 rpm. For an extra charge, truck buyers could choose the 239-cube V-8 that made 100 horsepower at 3,800 rpm. A three-speed transmission with a floor shift was standard within the F-1, with heavy-duty 3 and 4 speeds available as extra-cost options. F-2s and F-3s came with the four-speed standard.
In 1947, Ford built 62,072 half-ton trucks and another 29,343 Tonners. The 1948 F-1 range drew 108,006 orders, 13,255 F-2 were assembled, and F-3 output came to 22,069 units. Told by all Ford had its best year for truck production since 1929. But Chevrolet's Advance-Design trucks were still immensely popular and broke Ford's 19-year-old production records. Attentively at Ford shifted to the company's first new postwar car lines, there are no major changes for the 1949 trucks. The only ways to differentiate a 1949 F-Series from 1948 are its body-color wheels and thus the elimination of the red striping on the grille bars. All body colors carried over.

Trucks production for the industry as a whole declined in 1949 from the torrid pace of 1948. Ford's total was down, too, but not the utmost amount because of the industry average. F-1 assemblies totaled 104,803. The output of F-2s and F-3s vehicles came to 12,006 and 21,200 units respectively. On the subsequent page, determine about 1950 and 1951 Ford F-Series trucks.
