Ford Muscle Magazine: 1969 F-100 LED Lighting Upgrades

Lighting technology has come a long way since the late 1960s, with one of the most significant developments being the introduction of light-emitting diodes, also known as LEDs. Modern LEDs produce far more light output than the sealed beam lights that were installed in vehicles in the '60s, and they're also much more efficient and reliable. This results in better visibility of the road ahead, and better visibility of your vehicle to other motorists. For these reasons, our friends at Ford Muscle magazine recently picked up some parts from Classic Industries to convert their 1969 F-100 to LED lighting.

Ford Truck History: From the Model TT to the Modern F-Series

The Ford Motor Company first produced a pickup truck in 1917. The truck was called a Ford Model TT.

Ever since then, Ford has been building world-renowned pickup trucks, including the F-1, F-100, and bestselling F-150. Read on as we look back at Ford truck history from the early years through the modern F-Series.
