Ask and ye shall receive

In response to A Paperback Writer’s comment on my “Impromptu Old Ford Show” post:

The truck belongs to one of the Gearhead’s friends. So here are a couple of the better pictures of just his truck.  As you can see, he has stripped parts of it right down to the metal, so it won’t remain all blue, but the parts that are will stay that way.

Of course,  the other two are almost identical, other than the color and the grill, Ford didn’t change the trucks much for over 12 years.  That was true for all of the big three (Chevy, Dodge and Ford).  In the 60’s and 70’s most cars had overhauls every couple of years, but trucks would remain the same for close to a decade.

I’ll get some better pictures for ya the next time.

And what year is this truck? I think ours was a 66, but it could've been a 67.

This one is a 68, which is all but identical to the 67. The 66 is a completely different body, they did a major overhaul for the 67 year. Of course, the way years work, you could have bought the 67 truck in the last few months of 66.

Considering I was a toddler at the time, I don't know. Our truck must've been a 67, then, because I'm sure we had it when I was 2 (I remember it) and it had the same shape and style as this one.
Nice truck.
I'm sorry I didn't know about your Ford show.

Not too many people knew about the Ford show, it just kind of happened. I will let you know beforehand of the next one.
