Thanks, Kobra.

Here's another Ford question.....this one might be too easy.

Except for medium and heavy trucks, what was the last year that an American market Ford came with a straight axle front suspension?

I like that one Joe. I don't have a clue though! I am thinking of all the Fords I have worked on over the years and do remember I beam axles up to about 63 I believe.

'64 was the last year for straight axles in light F-series, but there was another model that still had them later than 64.

The F350 still had solid front axles as late as 2005. The change to IFS was the big selling point for my 2006 since it would only take a small parking lot to turn 360 rather then a big one.

Really? In a 2WD? I knew the F-450's and larger had them, but I could swear that all the F-350 2WD's had twin I-beam since '65.

I learn something new everyday. The floor is yours if you want it, Irelands child....

I'll defer to "others" this time. I'll be kinda tied up for the next couple days to monitor the guesses/answers

By the way, if anyone was wondering, the answer I was looking for (If I had worded my question better) was 1967. The Econoline didn't get twin I-Beam until '68......

Looks like the floor is up for grabs.
