Here is a list of the <strong>Top Ten Classic Trucks</strong>.
1928 Chevrolet Pickup
The 1928 Chevy Pickup was introduced during a period of heated competition between Chevy and Ford, a competition which continues until today. This truck is prized for its scarcity, overall ease of repair, and relative low price.
1928 Ford Model A/AA
Announced by Henry Ford in 2,000 full page ads, the Ford Model A/AA landed with a splash. This truck was the replacement to the hugely successful Model T. The Model A/AA was an immediate success, with the likes of then New York governor Franklin D. Roosevelt begin seen in one. This car is valued for its historical significance. It has many fans and it relatively cheap to purchase.
1930-1931 Ford Model A Truck
Many of the changes which were made to the Ford Model A/AA in order to produce the Model A truck were hidden from the eye. While many of the outer design elements remained the same, the Model A introduced mechanical brakes on all wheels, allowing for better stopping, and a modern gearbox. The Town Delivery body style is highly sought after.
1937-1938 Studebaker Coupe-Express
Mixing the comfort elements of a car with the practical elements of a truck, the Studebaker Coupe-Express is considered a truck which was ahead of its time. The Coupe-Express came with a steel frame, and offered many luxuries, such as leather upholstery and chrome bumpers. The car was not a commercial success at the time of its release, but it has come to be widely appreciated in modern times. Its sheer beauty and revolutionary design makes it a top ten classic truck.
1940 Ford Sedan Delivery
Considered by many connoisseurs as the most beautiful sedan delivery ever, this truck was styled with rounded edges which featured an artistic touch. This truck offered an 85-hp 221 cubic inch engine, or an economy version at 185 cubic inches at 60-hp. Collectors love it because of its beauty and strong valuations.
1947 Dodge Canopy Delivery
The Dodge Canopy delivery was a truck which was primarily used for door to door delivery of produce and other commodities. Its look harkens back to a simpler time, in post-war America. This truck is valued by collectors for its interesting wood-work and scarcity.
1950 GMC FC101 Pickup
The 1950 GMC FC101 is a beautiful truck. GMC had redesigned their truck series in 1948, and this truck is a stunning example of the result. This truck is sought after by collectors as it is more aesthetically appealing than the rival Chevys of the era.
1955 Ford F-100 Pickup
The Ford F-100 Pickup, like the Ford Model A/AA 30 years earlier, became an instant classic. The appeal of this truck then is the same appeal it has had in the 50+ years since its release: it is built to be tough and rugged. While the original F-100 was not the most powerful truck on the market, it did set a standard for design which would be copied for decades. This is where classic trucks get their classic look. This truck has strong collector interest, though it is not the most powerful truck in its class, and does not have the smoothest ride. This is the king of the top ten classic trucks.
1962 Chevrolet Corvair Truck
A great classic truck should represent its time period well. Perhaps no other truck represents the early 60s quite like the 1962 Chevy Corvair. This truck was produced with the German rival Volkswagen’s Beetle-based bus in mind. This truck offers a large open bed, and an air cooled engine. They are highly sought by their fans, but other people may consider them weird looking – which is undoubtedly part of their appeal.
1970 Ford Ranchero
The 1970 Ford Ranchero is a true period piece. Looking like the melding of a sedan and a truck, this truck lives in the wake of the 1937 Studebaker which was produced 33 years earlier. The Ranchero is prized because of its versatility. It can be seen as a truck, muscle truck (car,) or even sedan. Some versions are difficult to locate.
