We Love the Ford Truck?

Although City CLassic Cars builds all makes and models of trucks from GMC to Dodge to Chevy to Toyota, the Shop work trucks at City Classic Cars are all Fords from the classics to our newest F250 Super Duty. We love Ford Trucks. Our favorite Ford's to restore are the first 3 generation of F-100 Trucks, yet we will restore any generation Ford. We primarily build Ford trucks from 1948-1972 as an area of specialization.

The Ford F-Series is a series of light duty trucks and medium-duty trucks (Class 2-7) that have been marketed and manufactured by Ford Motor Company since 1948. While most variants of the F-Series trucks are full-size pickup trucks, the F-Series also includes chassis cab trucks and commercial vehicles. The Ford F-Series has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States since 1981 and the best-selling pickup since 1977. The Ford It is also the best selling vehicle in Canada.  

First generation (1948–1952)

The first-generation F-Series pickup (known as the Ford Bonus-Built) was introduced in 1948 as a replacement for the previous car-based pickup line introduced in 1942. The F-Series was sold in eight different weight ratings, with pickup, panel truck, cab-over engine (COE), conventional truck, and school bus chassis body style. City Classic Cars can restore and repair your first generation Ford Truck.

Second generation (1953–1956)

For the 1953 model year, an all-new version of the F-Series made its debut. Increased dimensions, improved engines, and an updated chassis were features of the second generation. Additionally, a change to the F-Series naming scheme would remain in place to the present day. The half-ton F-1 became the F-100 (partially influenced by the North American F-100 Super Sabre); the F-2 and F-3 were combined into the F-250 while the F-4 became the F-350. Conventional F-Series trucks were F-500 to F-900; COE chassis were C-Series trucks. City Classic Cars specializes in restoring and repairing the second generation Ford Trucks.

Third generation (1957–1960)

Introduced in 1957, the third generation F-series was a significant modernization and redesign. Front fenders became integrated into the body, and the new Styleside bed continued the smooth lines to the rear of the pickup.

The cab-over F-Series was discontinued, having been replaced by the tilt-cab C-Series. In 1959, Ford began in-house production of four-wheel-drive pickups. City Classic Cars can repair and restore your 4x4 Ford Truck.

Fourth generation (1961–1966)

Ford introduced a dramatically new style of pickup in 1961 with the fourth generation F-Series. Longer and lower than its predecessors, these trucks had increased dimensions and new engine and gearbox choices. Additionally, the 1961–1963 models were constructed as a unibody design with the cab and bed integrated. This proved unpopular and Ford reverted to the traditional separate cab/bed design in 1964. In 1965, the F-Series was given a significant mid-cycle redesign. A completely new platform, including the "Twin I-Beam" front suspension, was introduced that would be used until 1996 on the F-150 and until 2016 on the F-250/350 4x2. Additionally that year, the Ranger name made its first appearance on a Ford pickup; previously a base model of the Edsel, it was now used to denote a high-level styling package for F-Series pickups. City Classic Cars has the passion and talent to repair and restore your Ford Ranger in every year model..

Fifth generation (1967–1972)

Introduced in 1967, the fifth generation F-series pickup was built on the same platform as the 1965 revision of the fourth generation. Dimensions and greenhouse glass were increased, engine options expanded, and plusher trim levels became available during the fifth generation's production run. Suspension components from all 1969 F-Series models are completely interchangeable. A variant of the fifth generation F-series was produced until 1992 in Brazil for the South American market.
