America’s Car Museum, new exhibition features the Ford “F” Series.

The new exhibit features some of the rarest and most collectible F-Series pickup trucks from each era. The oldest vehicle in its exhibit, a 1948 Ford F-1, that spent years as a plumber’s truck before undergoing restoration.

In “The Truck that Grew Up with America,” ACM chronicles the 67-year history of the best-selling full-size pickup truck as it evolved from an agricultural tool into today’s truck that can be optioned into a posh luxury vehicle.
