1969 Ford F100 F250 Trucks

Ford light-duty F-Series sales topped 500,000 units for the first time in 1969. This was also the year a small music festival called Woodstock drew 32 bands and a half-million people to upstate New York, and Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the moon.

In the company of such notable events, Ford's ability to sell pickup trucks isn't something likely to appear in the history books. That is, unless you're searching up automotive history, in which case 1969 will be noted as the year Ford pickups outsold most other models in the Blue Oval stable.

Muscle cars were getting the glory, but pickups were getting the profits and it wouldn't be too long before the F-Series would be outselling everything on four wheels, Ford or otherwise.

What's New For 1969

Though pickup trucks were becoming more car-like with each passing year, new packages for F-Series trucks were offered in 1969 to accommodate buyers that had specific working needs. The Contractor's Special and Farm & Ranch packages combined popular truck options and specialty features to create vehicles ideally suited for specific duties. This resulted in new options such as lockable tool boxes or the now-requisite rear step bumper, the latter of which is still a pickup truck staple today.

Despite the work emphasis, fresh styling remained important as well. The grille was again tweaked slightly from the previous year, and several new color options kept the F-Series looking sharp.
