In 1953 Ford celebrated its Golden Anniversary. By redesigning the F series (the first time since 1948), they introduced the F-100 with a more integrated look. A longer hood, with a new hood emblem, that flowed into the front fenders, and horizontal grille bars. Dimensions were increased, engines were improved and the chassis was updated. The cabs were given more glass area, for better viewing of the road and surroundings. The first of the "Economy Truck Line".
The 1953 Ford F100 featured a V-8 engine. 239 ci, 93 hp @ 3,400 rpm
Wheelbase of 110 inches
The 1953 F-100 was the last year for the flathead engine in the US.
