History of F100S Engine and Transmissions

History of Engines and Transmission

The F-Series has become America’s Favorite Pickup, with nearly a million sold per year. From 1948 till 1983, the last year the F-100 was produced, it served as the pickup for people who wanted a true workhorse. These classic trucks lasted for seven generations and saw substantial changes. Though they’re no longer produced, Ford’s smallest F-Series is now sought by collectors and people who appreciate the spartan builds of older pickup styles. Use this guide for a full overview of this classic truck’s history and lineage.
