1957 Ford Trucks

1957 brought a bold new look to Ford trucks. It also brought some big changes and buyer choices. The 1957 trucks were roomier than the 1956 Ford Trucks.

One of the major changes for 1957 was that Ford truck buyers now had the choice between two box styles. In the past buyers knew a truck had a box with some fenders mounted on them.

The newly available Styleside bed allowed truck owners to carry more cargo. The smoother, larger box looked different and the old fendered box was called the Flareside. Both boxes were priced the same and were available in 6.5 or 8 foot lengths.
