RE: [DMCForum] Car 1st



Below he stated "extended cab truck".  If he meant "crew cab truck" he
should have stated such.  He didn't.  There are lots of pictures available
on the web for various trucks; I just posted a link to one I found in a
matter of seconds.

 

Automotive manufacturing was very different back then.  Often the car makers
would send out rolling chassis to other companies to put their bodies on.

First, I think Bob meant "crew" cab, not "extended" cab, the difference 
being 2 vs. 4 doors. The first crew cab (that I know of) was the '57 
International Travelette, but the first "extended" cab (billed as such), 
wasn't until the 70's, the Dodge Club Cab.

Second, are you sure that the Ford truck pictured in the auction below 
was mass-produced in that form? From reading the description, it seems 
that this was a custom modification to the truck from stock. But I 
don't really know anything about it.

I do know that the Dodge Club Cab is widely considered to be the first 
extended cab pickup truck.
