All Transmissions Include:
The 1971 Ford F-100 came with new exhaust emission controls. This meant that the standard 240 cubic inch inline six cylinder lost 10 horsepower and 4 pound-feet of torque. The automatic transmission was still optional in this vehicle, but the three-speed manual was more popular in heavier duty applications. The six digits on the serial number represent the sequence of production. These changes made the F-100 a more modern and capable vehicle.
The F-100 was the first Australian truck to be equipped with an automatic transmission. The vehicle was available with a four-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission. It had an optional power steering and 4-wheel disc brakes. This version was also the first model to be fitted with power brakes. The sports custom cab added an optional rear step bumper and was equipped with a day/night rear view mirror.
The 1970 model year saw Ford reorganize the F-100's trim line-up. The 5.0 Coyote V8 engine and Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission matched well to the vehicle's redesigned interior. The truck's interior featured wood-veneer inserts and full carpeting, and the headliner was sound-absorbing. Despite these changes, the resulting truck was a desirable addition to any collection.
The first automatic F-100 was sold in Australia, and was the first model with a four-speed manual. In contrast, the F-100 was the first Australian Sixth-Gen pickup to have an auto-shifting transmission. A few months later, Ford changed the trim level again and incorporated a new three-speed automatic transmission. The F-100's 5.0 Coyote engine remained a staple of the line-up.
The F-100 was introduced in 1953. The 239 CID overhead valve Y-block engine produced 205 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. It was also the first Ford truck to feature a wraparound windshield and vertical windshield pillars. In 1957, Ford introduced Low-GVWR models of the F-100, and a special sports custom cab model was released. The car was restyled again in the early 1970s and was marketed to young people.
The F-100 had a four-speed manual transmission until 1973. The F-100 had an automatic transmission for the first time in Australia. The SMOD transmission was the first of its kind to offer a four-speed manual. The SMOD had a similar design to the M5R1, but was a bit larger. The SMOD was produced in both 2WD and four-wheel drive versions.
The F-100 is one of the coolest classic cars. Its square body and tight lines make it a cool pick-up. The automatic transmission was available in three trim levels. The truck was also available with a manual or an automatic transmission. The manual transmission could be installed in the truck using the rear case. The GM-F100 was a heavy-duty work vehicle. The 5.7 Coyote V8 under the hood was capable of generating 230 bhp. Its Aeromotive fuel system helped in feeding the transmission.
