1959 Ford F100
The ultra-tough Ford F100

1959 Ford F-100

With big-truck toughness and the riding smoothness of a Ford passenger car the Ford F100 was another success in 1959. Features like Ford’s Short Stroke engines and an array of transmissions including the Heavy Duty Cruise-O-Matic made it an easy choice for consumers. Plus, each pickup came equipped with safety glass in every window.
