The pickup to which this dramatically finned rear view mirror is attached is “da bomb,” to use an expression several decades newer than the truck itself. Guess the identity of tomorrow’s hard-working Curbside Classic.
An early ’60s Ford (Mercury?) pickup? The “cross hair” motif (used by FoMoCo at Lincoln, natch) and the “font” of the “C” seems familiar – Probably means I’m WAY off….!
I’m gonna guess Chevy Cameo, the first of the full-width-bed pickups.
I thought looked like the C of ‘Custom’ used on many Fords (including ’60s Ford Transits here in the UK). So I’ll guess circa 1966 (US) Ford F100 pick-up. That’s a flashy door mirror though.
Could be Mid ’60s! I’m a GM guy, But this has a FoMoCo vibe to it! The mirror could be aftermarket as it IS rather fancy for a half century old truck. (back when trucks WERE meant to be trucks!)
I’m pretty sure that badge says Custom Cab, and your age estimate is close.
…..actually….that kinda works! …… I still think FoMoCo, But…..I’m looking at this…….
Definitely a pre-1967 Ford, or Canadian Mercury, Custom Cab pickup. Can’t narrow it down more than that.
’66 F100 Ford pickup.
I’m gunna say F series Ford circa 1963.
I syspect it’s one of those full-xoot Dodge pickups from the late 1950s –WITH Exnerized truck beds
Mid 60’s Ford truck with non original mirror.
I will narrow it down to a ’65 or ’66 Ford F series or Mercury M series Custom Cab pickup with an aftermarket mirror.
I’m going to say ’65 or ’66 F-100 Custom Cab (the side trim looked the same in both years, as far as I can tell). Where did the mirror come from? I have no idea. Ford’s brochures of the time are no help, outside of not showing this particular befinned mirror.
I’m going to say ’64 Ford F250, custom cab as others have stated.
Definitely a Ford F100 Ranger Custom Cab. The side spear gives it away and the two tone paint. The rear view mirror I am not so sure.
Ford it is.
Late 50’s Ford F100 Custom Cab…..58 or 59.
