Giolla Fhaolain ford, January 16th , 2017. First, what made Ford call these pickups F-150? The earliest use of the F-series name dates back to the 1948 Ford truck, with the half ton model named the F-1. Ford renamed that to F-100 in 1953, but the F-150 classification did not come about until 1976, why? This was a model that debuted to evade emissions requirements, as it was essentially a heavy half pickup rated at just over 6,000 pounds gross weight, which was the specification by the EPA at the time. This model required catalytic converters and subsequently unleaded gasoline. International Harvester also did this for 1975 in its final year of pickup production, making all half-ton 100 models 150s, to avoid installing catalytic converters. The final year of the F-100 was 1983, by which time leaded vs. unleaded was a moot point. The 100 or 150 indicated the nominal axle loading 100 = 1000 lbs, 1/2 ton, 150 = 1500 lbs 3/4 Ton. It had nothing to do with environmental requirements. It may be that the gross weight of the truck was increased in response to the 6000 lb marker, but the F-150s had been made for some time.
