The first factory-produced Ford Pickup was introduced in the spring of 1925. It was a Model T Runabout with a small pickup box. In 1928, when the Model A debuted, the light-duty truck line was expanded to include delivery and panel trucks. Also introduced was the Model AA 1-1/2 ton series. In 1932, the new Ford flathead V-8 added more power to the Ford truck line. The classic '34 Pickup was classified as a 1/2 ton with 112 in. wheelbase and featured the legendary flathead V-8 engine. The pickup bed had a heavy steel floor panel with pressed-in skid strips. This handsome little truck, available with either open or closed cab, was a fine pioneering effort in the development of one of the worlds finest pickup truck lines found in America today.
