Ford celebrates 100th anniversary of first truck

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Thursday marked a big day for Ford. It's the 100th anniversary of Ford trucks.

It all started in 1917 with a variation of Henry Ford's Model T, called the Model T Truck, for $600. It was built to help haul heavy loads.

Just over 200 trucks were sold that year, and a decade later, more than a million were sold.

Ford's trucks continued to evolve and win over drivers. Today, the F-series is America's bestselling truck, and has been for 40 years.
