I am not sure what is going on here but I think they superimposed and old picture of the two men and kids in front of this truck taken recently.



Ford promotional picture



Another Ford promo pic but it must have been a prototype as the 55 hood emblem is different that on production trucks.



56 Ford promo pic of an F100 long bed.

And here is my favorite vintage pic, although it is only from 1977. This is me and my truck in late November in a parade honoring our college soccer team after we won the NCAA Div III National Championship.
