The Ford Motor Company started building trucks in the United States from the earliest days of car production with the introduction of versions with flat truck bodies or Box vans. The some early models were built with removable bodies to allow use as a truck by farmers in the week and as car for the family at weekend to visit town and Church.

For the main history of the UK operations, see Ford of Britain.

In 1997, Ford sold off their American heavy truck division (Classes 7 and 8), and they became known as Sterling Trucks. Freightliner purchased the company, and was in turn purchased by Daimler AG. The Sterling brand was discontinued in 2009.[1] Ford continues building medium class trucks with the F-650 and F-750 Ford F-Series and recently introduced the LCF series similar in design to the Ford Cargo trucks of the past.
