Question of the Week: Tell us which classic pickup is the best looking

The 1960-64 Studebaker Champ short bed. (Not the Spaceside, which used a Dodge bed)
Studebaker was in trouble, and couldn’t compete with the Big 3, but their designs were still ahead of their time.

I have a couple of trucks. One Ford F250 and one Chevy C 10. I call them Beauty and the Beast collection. The Chevy is more car-like, air conditioning, tilt wheel, creature comforts. The Ford is an animal. I love them both!

That is a truck! Original 413 or transplant/upgrade?

I have a 65 2WD custom cab with the Kaiser 6. I need some sheet metal (front fenders). Like ur truck

This is my latest project, a 67 Mercury std cab shortbox that I found in Calgary. The Marti report verifies that it was built in Oakville, Ontario CAN. Some Mercs were built in San Jose. The 68 F100 Ranger was built in Oakville and sold new in Tennessee, it is my favorite and the gals love it in its tan /white color combo.
I lowered the Merc and it had a 460 installed when I bought it.
The 68 has a lot of original paper work and it has the 360, 3 on the tree and factory overdrive which is awesome to drive and cruise. I also have

When a man’s truck meant a work mate on wheels (rather than a status symbol) I think the 1947 to early 55 Advanced design trucks are unbeatable. No, not the sharpest, coolest, or most impressive, but just a happy face that says, " High ho, high ho, it’s off to work we go!":truck:hqdefault

1958 Chevy Cameo - Hands down!

Gen 2 Lightning, wonderful lines including driveline

38 ford is the best looking pickup ever made.

The late 60s to early 70s Ford F100 is the top of my list. Regular cab, short bed, 2wd

I prefer the Gen 2 Lightning
