About the 1966 Ford F-I00
The fourth generation of the Ford F-Series is a line of pickup trucks and commercial trucks that were produced by Ford from October 1960 to August 1966. Sleeker and wider than its predecessor, the new F-Series introduced several firsts to the truck line. In Canada, the F-Series continued to be distributed by Mercury dealers as the M-Series.
In October 1964, the 1965 F-Series was introduced an all-new frame, which would then be used on the F-Series until 1979. In contrast, the body remained largely unchanged, but the 1965 and 1966 models, the turn signals are above the headlights. Replacing the rudimentary straight-axle in the front was all-new independent “Twin I-Beam” suspension with coil springs on two-wheel-drive trucks.
The 1965 and 1966 F-Series trucks are distinguished with a “TWIN I-BEAM” emblem on the front fender. The F-Series also included a 4-door crew-cab model. The 240 cu in (3.9 L) and 300 cu in (4.9 L) straight six was introduced. With the introduction of the 208 hp (155 kW; 211 PS) 352 cu in (5.8 L) FE V8, output surpassed 200 hp in the F-Series for the first time.
