1960 Ford F100 Trucks Specs
The 1960 model year included a few changes over 1959 trucks. This was the last model year in this generation of Ford F-Series trucks, however 1960 was the year that Ford introduced the compact Falcon Ranchero, previous Rancheros were big and body-on-frame construction.

The F O R D lettering on the hood was changed again for 1960, as was the grille.
The grille extended down to the bumper and had a thicker bar between the headlights. The hood emblem was also changed.
