celebrated its Golden Anniversary
with a new truck in 1953. The 1953-1956 Ford F-100 Pickup styling was clean and modern, but it had more. It looked like a truck: tough, solid, practical, and ruggedly handsome. That might explain its success when new, and also its almost cult-like following as a collector vehicle.
Also helping the F-100's appeal was a well-designed cab with comfortable driving position and convenient controls.
Pluses of the 1953-1956 Ford F-100 Pickup:
Handles well for a 1950s truck,
Looks like a truck,
Powerful engines (after 1953)
Minuses of the 1953-1956 Ford F-100 Pickup:
Generally not as fast for those used to modern trucks,
Prices have escalated -- it's much harder to find a bargain,
Rough ride for those used to modern trucks
