No one in my family, or even my extended family, has ever owned a Ford product. As it is well known, the founder of the company was openly anti-simetic and memory of that prejudice still carries over to this day among the American Jewish population. Imagine the market force that might occur if a Jew was hired for a key executive position.
The truck bed had a wooden stockade and we used to stand up in the back of the truck and go four wheeling, Missouri muddy fields, hill climbs, fish tailing thru mud while holding on in the bed!!! That was in the sixties, no speed limits in Missouri, only had to have your name and address painted on the side of the truck!!!!!!
