1952 Second Generation
For the 1953 model, Ford restructured the F-series of trucks into something closer to what we see today. The half-ton F-1 became the F-100, the F-2 and F-3 were condensed into the F-250, and the F-4 became the F-350. Conventional heavy-duty F-series trucks became the F500 through 900, and the cab-over design got its own C-series designation. Ford also introduced a Low Gross Vehicle Weight Restriction (Low GVWR) model for light duty needs.
