1950 Ford F-Series

The Ford trucks were redesigned in 1948, and for 1950, few changes were implemented. The new F-Series had a dedicated truck chassis and was offered in eight different weight ratings, pickup, panel truck, cab-over engine (COE), conventional truck, and school-bus chassis and body styles. The F-Series had a flat, one-piece windshield, headlamps integrated with the grille, a wider cab, and options included a 'See-Clear' windshield washer operated by a foot plunger, passenger-side windshield wiper and sun visor, and passenger-side taillight. Other options included twin horns and additional chrome brightwork.

Power was from a 226 cubic-inch flathead six rated at 95 horsepower. Option engine options over the years included 239, 254, 337 cubic-inch Flathead V8s and up to 279 and 317 cubic-inch Lincoln-derived Y-Block overhead valve V8s for the largest capacity F-7 and F-8 models. The trucks had a floor-mounted shifter, which was being phased out in favor of a column shift design. Several transmission options were available, including light- and heavy-duty 3-speed, spur-gear and synchronized 4-speeds, and overdrive and direct-drive 5-speeds.

Production of this generation of F-Series trucks would continue until 1952.

The F-Series trucks were assembled at sixteen different Ford factories. The F-1 had a 6 1/2 foot bed; the F-2 and F-3 Express models had an 8-foot bed.
