DEARBORN, Michigan – The forties have been good to Ford’s F-Series, given that the tough icons of American light trucks have been around for 45 years as America’s best-selling truck and 40 years as best-selling vehicle.
Now Ford Dearborn is celebrating the production of its 40-millionth F-Series for US customers seven decades after the first.
The superspecial unit, an F-150 Tremor unit finished in Iconic Silver, rolled off the line on January 27 2022 at the Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan. It’s headed to a customer in Texas who wanted an F-150 to get to work..
Because that’s what Ford trucks do.
Also pictured is a 1950 Ford F-1, sparkling and restored, some 75 years after production began, after which came the Ford F-1, F-2, F-3 and F-4 from 1948.
…AND ANOTHER ICON
Production of the first-generation F-Series ran from from 1948-50 – dates similar to that of another icon – England’s Land Rover 4×4 now famous worldwide.
