1959 F-250 is a Unique Throwback Shop Truck

By -


The third-generation F-Series, produced from 1957-1960, brought some interesting styling changes to Ford’s venerable pickup. Gone were the protruding fenders of the bygone era as the newer trucks featured wider bodies to go with an integrated hood. These were dramatic changes meant to propel these trucks into the future.

Whether those changes were successful or not is debatable. Third-generation Ford trucks tend to be less popular than their predecessors and those that followed. These are still some cool, classic trucks that deserve attention, and they certainly stand out from the sea of 50’s and mid-to-late 60’s trucks out there.


This particular 1959 F-250 is unique in it’s own right. The throwback Mobil logo on the doors make it perfect for a parts store or repair shop, meshing perfectly with the original look of the truck. The eight-lug steel wheels aren’t something you see every day, either.


The 3/4 ton has the biggest motor you could buy in these trucks in 1959 as well – the 292 Y-block V8, backed up by a 4-speed manual transmission. While the truck isn’t in perfect shape, it is nice enough that you’ll draw plenty of attention everywhere you go.
