Truck Information:
This 1965 N-750 Ford truck was owned by Dennis Miller, a retired Ford light truck design engineer in Dearborn, Michigan. He used the truck for many years on his family's grain farm. The grain bed on it has a twin triple stage hoist. The truck itself boasts a 163 inch wheelbase and was built in Louisville, Kentucky. It was displayed with a vintage Fordson tractor on board at Ford's Centennial Anniversary in 2003. Ford introduced the N-Series in 1963 following the success of their F line of trucks. The N-Series grill/radiator surround design was inspired by the heavy F and H Series trucks. In 1965, Ford’s N-Series was designed with a short, 89-inch bumper-to-back-of-cab distance, allowing more chassis and payload weight to be transferred to the front axle. This shift along with the use of a wide-track front axle and narrow fender widths were alterations that improved the truck’s general maneuverability, while a sloped nose also improved visibility.
