Ford fpickup ford f-pickupearly on in the history of ford motor company a noticeable lowercase “e” completed the curl at the back of the cursive f on the ford name. Henry ford, and thomas edison both had winter estates in ft. Meyers florida, and shared ideas and cigars. One idea that would make ford a real innovator was the concept of the assembly line.

A very nice example indeed!Exteriorstraight off the farm in ny, the cab was sandblasted, a custom firewall installed, new floors put in, and new cowl panels and rockers to provide a truly solid cab.
