The ICON Reformer “Six Pack”
Just for today, Triplett’s Eye on Cars becomes....
Triplett's Eye on Trucks.
Beginning in 1964 Ford Motor Company offered a “Crew Cab” body style for their new fourth-generation F250 (3/4 ton load capacity) truck. The early 1961-1963 F-series Ford truck featured a uni-body (cab and bed integrated) design which was dropped for 1964. While a four-door “Crew Cab” pickup truck is a common site nowadays, in the nineteen sixties this design also known as a “Six Man Cab” was factory custom built starting with a regular cab.
