Top 10 America’s Favorite Truck

1948 First Generation
In late 1947, Ford announced their first new model of truck since the war, and in early 1948, they released the Ford Bonus-Built, also known as the F-1. It featured a single piece windscreen, an optional four-wheel drive by Marmon-Herrington and was rated to a half ton. The F-Series line would expand to include full-sized trucks, cab-over-engine commercial vehicles, and even school buses. Heavy-duty models, labeled as F-7 and F-8, were conventional designs based on larger versions of the F-1. Under the hood, the first F-series trucks came with either a 226 cubic inch inline six or a 239 flathead V-8.
