One more vehicle from the parking lot before we venture indoors. Here’s a 1948-50 Ford F-1 pickup truck, outfitted with a plow. Could have used that this week.

According to Wikipedia, the F-1 was not only Ford’s first post-war truck, it was also the first Ford truck not built on a car chassis.

Here’s a short video from The Fast Lane Classics showing a couple of restored F-1s and providing a bit more information. Looks like these early trucks had very small cabs compared to today’s.
