what is the earliest model ford truck that had a super cab or crew cab? i just bought a fifth wheel camper and thought it would be cool to pull it with a classic truck 3/4 ton or 1 ton would be nice. maybe a diesal swap if possible.
In LMC they listed 1974 as the first year, as a factory option but I dunno. I saw a 1968 sell at auction with 4 doors and just a few weeks ago Fom posted a picture of a 1952 with a factory looking supercrew.
If you want I know of a rusty 1979ish super crew that would be sold if a offer came along.
thanks for the info i was hoping for something older in the 30s or 40s. illsee if i can find the post from fom. also anyone know if dodge made a ranchero or camino style car,conversatin came up around the campfire last wknd nobody had an answer.
Just one thing to consider is that a 30's or 40's truck wouldn't be able to handle a trailer without major modifications not to mention the size. A 30's to 41 truck is like the size of a Ranger. It wasn't until 42 that they used a parallel leaf springs.
For it to be even possible you would have to have a custom built chassis made to fit the truck perfect.
I've only seen one truck that has fit your description. It would be a late 30's early 40's white pickup around Regina. I think it's sitting on a later frame but since the frame is wider they pretty much cut the truck in half and added like 1 foot in width. They did make it a supercab but IMO the thing looks terrible.
I think my truck would just be adequate to use a 5th wheel. I only plan on having a class IV receiver to maybe pull a car trailer.

I don't know if this is going to come out as a double post, but I've come across pics of a 1939 Ford COE, Crew Cab, great looking truck! I was under the impression that Ford offered a Crew Cab since those years?!
