It’s that time again. Every year in March, Ford launches the American tradition: Ford Truck Month. It’s a tradition that’s nearly 100 years old. For the last 60 years, Ziems Ford Corners has been proudly celebrating Ford Truck Month.
In 1917, the first purpose-built Ford truck rolled off the assembly line. The Ford Model TT is likely the most radically different Ford Model T variant ever produced. Its production forever changed the automotive industry – and the very nature of work itself.
In 1948, the first F-Series truck emerged from the Highland Park plant, changing the long-term manufacturing of pick-up trucks. Eight years later, in 1961, a retired Air Force Pilot from St. Louis opened Ziems Ford Corners in Farmington, New Mexico changing Four Corners car buying forever.
60 Years of Truck Months
Since our humble beginnings, when Joe Ziems first founded this dealership, the team at Ziems Ford Corners has proudly celebrated truck month. It’s the time of year when buyers can get the biggest savings, the best financing and the most robust warranties. Whether looking for an F-150, F-250, Super Duty or Ranger, Ziems has the truck you want at a price you’ll like. During truck month, Ford has a whole selection of “Bonus Packages” to choose from, making now the best time to buy that new Ford Truck.
And so it Continues
More than a century after creation, Ford trucks are still among the most iconic vehicles in the world. Today, the F-Series is America’s best-selling truck for its 44th consecutive year and best-selling vehicle for 39 years straight. When an icon gets to a certain age, automakers usually begin to rely on a certain level of nostalgia to help sell them. But the Ford F-Series puts all those cars to shame. In fact, for decades now, it has put everything to shame in the sales department. If you want to own an iconic legend of your own, call us at (888) 375-9581 or stop by Ziems Ford Corners to see why we’ve been the best for the last 60 years.
