I'm guessing mid 60's. I have seen at least one 65 model. Might have been earlier. They were rare though. Usually gov't (forestry service) or big corporations were the only ones to buy.

A buddy of mine just sold one. I had posted it on the classifieds here. It was a 67 F250 crew cab. FE/C-6. Pretty decent old truck. Just not enough grunt to haul is 26' enclosed race car trailer. His truck was originally owned by the phone company as a crew hauling truck.

I would guess real early 60's maybe even in 1960.

WOW!! THAT IS AN EXCELLENT LINK, ALEX!! THANKS FOR SHARING THAT!!

A couple of years ago I saw a '65 Crew 4X4 that was beautifully restored, aqua w/black trim (even black OE steel wheels). I couldn't stop at the time, but I asked around town for anyone who may of seen it parked anywhere... however, it apparently was from out of town - never to be seen again.

Ever since that sighting - I dream of landing a 3/4 or 1-ton '65 2X4 Crew, with a transplanted 460 and T-18 4-speed - I think it would be the berries as a tow truck for a 60's race car!

Ford began building 4 door cabs in-house in 1966. Outside vendors built them for Ford prior to that, mainly for the forestry service and railroads. I've seen 1956 four door cabs that were built in 1956 (and some that were built in the 1990's)
