1974 Ford F100
The 1974 Ford Pickup

1974 Ford F-100

For 1974 a new extended cab version was available on the Ford F-series. The Supercab was offered as either a full-width rear seat or two facing jumper seats that fold out of the way when not in use. Supercab could be ordered in 6.75 ft. or 8 ft. Styleside box. 16 different colors to choose from were available as well as a two-tone paint scheme option. The F100 had many standard features including Instrument cluster with green backlighting, keyless locking doors, ashtray, door scuff plates, seatbelts, 2-speed winshield wipers, and dome light with door courtesy light switches.

The F250 carried most of the same features as the F100 but included a standard 3-speed transmission plus power brakes. For only $600 more, the truck could come in a 4x4 version.  In 1974, the F350 was available only with the Styleside box but you could choose from 3 different cabs including Regular, Supercab or Crew Cab. A 4-speed manual transmission came standard on all F350's as well as front shocks and heavy-duty power front disc brakes.
