Pickups were originally developed for the transportation of compact goods on mid-range distances -- they were utilitarian vehicles, but retained the comfort of cars. Pickup trucks received particular popularity in the United States, where they have gained farmers, small business owners, owners of large country estates and other practical people.

1925 Ford Model T Runabout with Pickup Body
In the beginning of the 20-th century, only 35% of the American families still lived on farms, but the majority of businesses used one- or two-horse wagons as their means of transport. In 1925 the Ford Company built the first alternative to those wagons, and that was the pickup truck.
The Ford Model T Runabout with a pickup body was the first factory-built pickup truck of the company. It was released in April, 1925 priced at $281.
That same year, this truck set a new production record: more than 270,000 samples were produced. Ford also built its 12-millionth vehicle and opened the first factory in Mexico.
The new Ford Model T Runabout was actually a roadster type pickup made with a 56” long all steel bed that had 40 inches width, and 13 inches height. The truck had an adjustable tailgate while the sides of the bed came with pockets for stakes. Customers who wanted a longer and heavier duty pickup truck picked the Ford Model TT truck with an eight-foot long Express Body.
The Ford Model T pickup truck was powered by a small four cylinder engine rated at 20 hp, but it revolutionized the United States. This glorious era came to an end when the company decided to seize the production of the Model T in 1927.
