YAK Car Pic of the Day

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!
