1964 Ford F100 SWB - Ford updated its popular F-Series pickup trucks in 1961, marking the venerable truck’s fourth discrete generation. In the process, the F-100 received a revamped appearance with a stacked grille, a lower stance, and a brighter cab. Most notable, however was an innovative integrated cab/bed design that was applied to lighter duty trucks. While retaining standard body-on-frame architecture, these were the first pickup trucks to have the cab and box integrated (not to be confused with car based Ranchero and El Camino). For a boulevard cruiser, this made quite the fashion statement. For a work truck, which would get loaded with cargo and driven on rough roads or off road, the flexing frame under an unyielding body would cause damage. Heavier duty models from these years—and all four-wheel-drive trucks—used the previous generation’s Styleside bed box or the traditional Stepside. In 1964, Ford introduced a new Styleside box design specifically for that generation of F-series, continuing through 1966.
