1952 Ford F-Series Pickup Trucks
Ford didn't change their truck lineup much for 1952. Changes over the 1951 Ford Truck consisted of:
- a new six cylinder overhead valve engine, a 215-c.i. inline six with 101 horsepower.
- a new nose & trim pieces on the hood
- the nose intake is now body color
Many parts of the 1952 Ford F-Series trucks are very similar to the 1948 through 1951 Ford trucks. Available models for 1952 are the F-1, F-2, and F-3. Available engines include either a 215 cid inline 6 cylinder (101 horsepower) or a 239 cid flathead V8 (100 horsepower).
The 1952 Ford Panel Delivery truck equipped with the Marmon-Harrington four wheel drive conversions was called a Ranger. It's not known to us if this was the first time the Ranger nameplate was used.
