1967 Ford F-Series Specs F100 Trucks Specs
Major suspension and powertrain changes in the previous few years had already taken the F-Series to the next evolutionary level for pickup trucks, but Ford would complete that next step with a whole new design for the 1967 model year.
This marks the beginning of the fifth-generation F-Series - the generation that would live through the heyday of the muscle car era and carry the brand into the notorious 1970s. Oil shortages, emission controls and stricter safety standards were just around the corner, but for a few short years it seemed manufacturers had no limit as to what kind of performance they could put on the road.
Though an official performance variant of the F-Series was still decades away, the fifth-generation F-Series would see the biggest horsepower ratings in a Ford pickup until the advent of the second-generation, supercharged SVT Lightning in 1999.
Chalk it up to sharing a Blue Oval badge with vehicles called Mustang, Fairlane and Cobra, and of course to the buyers who simply couldn't get enough horsepower. Either way you cut it, the fifth-generation F-Series delivered everything truck buyers of the day were looking for.

What's New For 1967
The new generation did away with the swooping fender lines and many of the rounded corners that exemplified vehicle design earlier in the decade. Ford's new pickups were straighter, smoother and cleaner than ever before, with larger-than-life grilles filled with stacked rectangular vents swallowing air.
Large badges adorned the front fenders on either side, while straight body lines and moldings further added to the streamlined new look. Inside, cabs were larger and generally more luxurious than ever, with the Ranger now listed as the top-of-the-line model complete with carpeting, faux wood trim and deluxe woven seats.
Two-speed windshield wipers and seat belts were among the major standard-issue safety items for 1967, and double-wall construction, which had previously been used only on the bed, was now used for the hood and sides of the cab.
Wheelbases were stretched to a maximum of 131 inches for the F-100 and F-250, with firmer suspension supporting everything. F-350 models received a heavy-duty version of Ford's Twin I-Beam suspension, and the one-ton's wheelbase received an extra stretch to 135 inches, allowing it to carry a 9-foot Flareside bed. Backing up all the changes was a new powertrain warranty from Ford that covered all F-Series trucks for 50 months or 50,000 miles.
Here is an excerpt from the '67 Ford truck brochure:
Ford's all-new 1967 pickups are tougher and smoother! Tougher from the frame up ... and a pleasure to drive. Compare them with cars, not trucks, as to comfort, smoothness and quiet ride!
The all-new styling is functional; cabs are roomier, visibility is better, too! In addition, new double-wall hood sections provide outstanding stability and rigidity.
Double-wall side panels of Styleside pickup bodies protect outer walls. F-100 / F-250 Series Stylesides bring you a new idea in pickups, the Ranger!
F-100 Rangers have 115- and 131-inch wheelbases with 6 1/2- and 8-ft Styleside boxes respectively. The F-250 ranger has a 131-inch wheelbase and 8-ft box. Both the F-100 and F-250 Series have Ford's road-smoothing Twin-I-Beam front suspension.
And now for '67 so does the F-350 Series! The F-350 with new 135-inch wheelbase is available with 9-ft Flareside pickup, stake and platform bodies and as chassis-cab, cowl or windshield models.
New 159-inch wheelbase F-350 are offered for commercial bodies up to 12-ft long or 14-ft chassis-mounted cab-over campers. And by special order, a 6-man crew cab is available for F-250 and 350 Series pickups and chassis-cab models.
1967 F-Series Model Lineup
The Ranger, having previously been an option package for Custom Cab models, was promoted to become its own model for 1967 and available on F-100 or F-250 trucks.
These models could also be optioned with two or four-wheel drive and 6.5 or 8-foot pickup beds in Styleside or Flareside design. F-350 pickups were still only two-wheel drive, but they now offered a heavy-duty version of the Twin I-Beam suspension on a longer wheelbase. Six-man Crew Cabs were also available as a special order option for F-250 or F-350 trucks.
New 1967 Ford F-100/250 Ranger Model
Ford's all-new, top-of-the-line F-100/250 Styleside pickup! The full-width, deep-cushioned seat is upholstered in a highly styled durable vinyl with a soft cloth appearance.
Vinyl door trim panels and deep-pile carpeting are handsomely trimmed with bright-metal moldings. Upholstery is keyed to main body colors.
The horn ring, instrument cluster, headlining and instrument padding moldings are bright-finished. Outside, bright finished front bumper, grille, headlight assembly, hub caps and wheel lip, rocker panel and tailgate moldings add extra sparkle ... clearly identifies Ranger as Ford's finest full-size pickup.
1967 F-Series Engines / Powertrains
Revisions to the brakes and brake system design were said to make the braking on the fifth-generation trucks better than the models before.
