Okay, okay. I know this is my 50's page and this truck is a '49. But I don't think it is entirely out of place here, do you?
The '50 Ford was very similar to the '49. You'll notice the slats in the grille. The '49 has four, and they are wider. The '50 has five, and they are more narrow.
Here is a shiny '50.
This is a pretty nice '51 in original condition. Notice how tall the rear-view mirror is. It is almost at roof level.
This '52 has a lot of potential. Send me some more pictures of it.
1953 brought a new body style that would continue until 1956. The '53 Ford is near the top of my favorites list. This is a fine specimen. I love those chrome-reversed rims!
The '53 Merc and the '53 Ford were basically the same. This '53 Merc has the "Deluxe" cab option that included the little "teeth" that are set in the grille. The package also included the "boomerang" emblems, and the interior had additional trim the standard package did not include.
The '54 Ford had a unique grille that was much different than the '53, '55, and the '56. It looks like it has a mean snarl... much like a beaten pitbull. (Okay, not quite, but close.) I never used to like the '54, but I really do like that grille!
The '55 had a similar grille to the '53, however it had a deep "V" in the middle.
I dare you to find me a nicer looking '56 than this. I absolutely love this truck! The way it is angled for the picture is perfect. I even used this picture for my desktop.
The '57 brought a new body style. Gone was the "stepside" style and the truck took on the shape of the trucks of today.
The '58 and '59 Fords had a wide, mean looking grille. I also like the way the cab seems to tilt forward. It makes the truck look fast!
Brian Nyman from Maple Grove, MN sent in these pictures (this one as well as the two below) of these great looking '58's.
This is one mean '59!
