What makes a Superduty a Superduty? I thought they just applied the name one year . . . .
Ford first introduced the Super Duty line in the 50's. I believe it was 1958. What did it mean? It meant it was a heavy TRUCK. Big engines, 5 or 10 lug bud wheels, or spoke, some had air brakes, and a plethora of drivetrain options. Basically, it replaced the Big Job lineup of the early 50's.

Cabs were basically pickup cabs, though many had a raised roof to accommodate taller seats, to see over the big steering wheel, a flat floor, ( no trans hump) a different dash insert, ( more gages), doors were pickup doors, but were often rienforced for West Coast mirrors, front ends were completely different, but used a pickup hood, often with an air scoop.

As it pertains to your truck, Ford decided it sounded cool on TV, and used the name to instill the feeling of a heavy tough truck in potential buyers, near as I can tell.

Hey Blue,

Is that one of your trucks on the farm? Looks like a good one to stuff a V8 v504 Cummins in (hint hint ;)).

Reserve in my KW fuel tank is 13 gallons, sometimes it is very helpful to know that information

Whoops --- I wasn't clear --- I thought I broke the fuel level when 10 gallons didn't register.

In truth, 10 is what I have left when the gauge reads "E" :D
