... The F Series pickups also took on new names. The F3 became the F350. The F2 was renamed the F250 and the F1 became the F100. The F100 retained the new name until Ford stopped production after the 1983 model year.
Ford also continued their original set of interior parts options in this pickup Series. Those classic F100 parts included a dome light, cigarette lighter, ash tray, sun visors and radio. Ford also added an optional automatic transmission for the F100 in 1953.
