This 1963 Ford F100 Flareside was a throwback to how all pickups used to look, with a rectangular box and separate rear fenders. That changed in 1955 when the smooth-sided Chevy Cameo Carrier and GMC Suburban Pickup made their debuts, which was followed in 1957 by a hastily-designed Dodge Sweptside D100 (which featured the rear quarter panels from a Dodge station wagon), and the Ford Styleside — the Ford being the first to be designed from the ground-up as a truck which forsook the separate rear fenders. This nice 1963 Flareside was seen over the summer at a gathering of — what else? — Edsel owners which we attended in South Wales.
