1966 Ford F100
1966 Ford F100 Pickups with the Twin I Beam Independent Suspension.

1966 Ford F-100

What a great year for Ford trucks. It was the second year of the "Twin I-Beam" front suspension system where the two front axles work independently to absorb road shocks. It also holds wheel alignment which reduces tire wear. In combination with the new Flex-O-Matic rear suspension which adjusts spring stiffness, you are guaranteed a smooth ride.

While 1966 was the first year for new options such as the 360 and 390 cu. in. V8 engines, it was the last year featuring this body style.
