Robert Ackerson lives in the small upstate New York community of Schenevus. Formerly a public school teacher, he now writes full-time on a wide variety of automotive topics. His other books include marque histories on the Chrysler 300, Chrysler PT Cruiser, Ford F-150 (1997-2005), Jeep CJ, and Jeep Wrangler, as well as two racing histories of Mercedes cars: Return to Glory and Two Summers, all published by Veloce. Having owned several F-series pickups, he is very familiar both with their heritage and their versatility.
Veloce's comprehensive history in their Classic Reprint series provides all you need to know about Ford's compact workhorses from their inception to the mid-Nineties. With all the technical data you might need and supported by many photos, it provides a fascinating history to one of America's most popular trucks, culminating in two chapters demonstrating the restoration of an F1 and early F100 respectively. A must for all pick-up fans! - Classic American.
