Does anyone know what trim packages were available in 69', and what the major differences were. I know that there was a custom, ranger and an explorer trim but I don't know which was the base model and which was an "extra option". Thanks in advance and this is one of the coolest message boards on the Web!!!
I've never seen a 69 Explorer before but the Ranger in 69 far as i know was top of line.It still had the Sport Custom trim on body though,I think 70 or 71 got the Ranger only trim.
Rangers had wood grain instrument cluster,trim on dash,Ranger badge on glove box,trim around door panel,chrome headliner trim,windshield,drip rail,rear windo trim,Cargo light,and alot had carpet,i also suppose alot of these opyions were optonal but the one i got has all this.(Parts For sale BTW
1970 f250 4x4
I'm only aware of the Custom Cab, the Ranger package and the Camper Special, but I know that there were others. As a matter of fact, I think there was a Heavy Duty as well in '69 but it wasn't publicized.

My 69 is a custom with the explorer badge on the glove box. It also has all of the trim you mentioned except for the rear window trim, the wood grain instrument panel and carpet. I had never seen the "explorer badge" on this year and no one else that I had taked to had either. Thanks for the info.
The trim packages I am aware of were the Custom(Base model), Sport Custom( 1 step over base, usually had the knitted vinyl and color co-ordinated trim,chrome front bumper) Ranger (woodgrain trim, chrome, better seat) Farm & Ranch Special, Contractors Special, and I think the Explorer package. Have lots of other info if you need it...

Just yesterday, I obtained a 69 cab which is from an F100 with the Explorer option package. The Ranger XLT, however, was the top of the line option.
I have a 67 250 camper spl. custom cab that has the thin chrome down the sides, chrome around the windshield,headliner and in the cab behind the seats. yes SEATS it has factory buckets. I have posted this before and no reply's . does anyone else have a factory bucket seat truck67-72???? As of now stockman is researching how many were produced for me, he is the only one that has helped me on this, he has a great site.

I would love to help but my resources are limited to what i already know
I would also like to know the numbers when he finds out.
I knoew of a 71 XLT but those are hard to come by.
The Custom F100 seemed most common even over the total stripper model.
Far as i know all the custom got you was maybe trim down the side but not rocker and a padded dash.

They’re not that expensive, I bought them all for reference but they are at home so I can’t help you right now.

Thanks for all your comments. I am trying to restore my truck and getting into all the cool facts about these specific years.
Also 67f250 I believe that 1966 was the last year of the metal dash. Thanks again

I know a guy with a late 60's F600 that has the plain dash,and i bought my sill plates and seat from a 67 F100 plane jane that had no dash pad,nor did it have holes in the dash,it has a factory looking Ford Speaker cover that was smashed but looked orignal.
Enlighten me,I have seen this but i have no proof they were originally 'padless',They sure looked to be though.

I am quite certain that it became a federal safety requirement sometime in 1966. The 1967 production run started in August 1966. All 67 pick-ups were originally equipped with the dash pad.
