1957 Third Generation
The third generation of F-Series trucks brought significant changes to the pickup. The fenders were integrated with the bodywork, as was the hood, which changed to a clamshell design. The cab used the vertical pillars hinted at in the 1956 model, and the styleside box maintained the smooth lines of the cab to the tailgate, though a flareside box was also available. The grille grew and became more prominent, and the interior received a makeover. In 1958, the F-100 received quad headlights with a grille update, and factory installed four-wheel drive became an option in 1959.
