YAK Car Pic of the Day

'67 Ford F-100, Yorkshire, N.Y.

Although this 1967 Ford F-100 (as half-tons were called back then) looks likes it’s wearing a Texas paint job (and maybe it is), it was actually spotted a while back in a used car lot in the Town of Yorkshire. It’s funny how pickups have evolved since then. Check out some of the “features” touted in the Canadian Ford/Mercury pickup brochure from that year: molded fiberboard glovebox with push-button latch; attractive, functional instrument cluster; and one-piece, easy-to-keep-clean hardboard headlining. No wonder the Ford half-ton pickup morphed into the best-seller that it is today!

    Hokey Smokes Bullwinkle! 1967, I was a sophmore back at Bishop Fallon H.S. in Father Blaney’s French class. Now I’m driving a 2010 F-150, with all the goodies. It’s like going from the Spirit of St. Louis to a F-18.

    The F-100’s of that vintage are highly coveted machines today. A friend who was restoring one and was ‘relieved’ of it while it was sitting in his Phoenix carport.
