DALLAS, Sept. 27 The successful alliance between American icons
Ford Motor Company and Harley-Davidson Motor Company rolls on with
the launch the 2008 105th Anniversary Edition Ford Harley-Davidson
F-Series Super Duty.
Henry Ford started his production models the same year that William

and with the same design features.
This is a great opportunity for Ford and Harley-Davidson two
American icons to celebrate 105 years of shared passion for the
open road, said Tom Aubrey, marketing manager, Ford F-Series Super
Duty. Truck and motorcycle customers share the same values and
dreams: they work hard, believe in genuine products and love
experiencing the nations highways and byways.
The 2008 Ford Harley-Davidson F-Series Super Duty is the 11th model
to emerge from a Ford Harley-Davidson alliance that began in 1999.
The co-branding of these two storied companies has proven to be a
successful formula, with sales totaling more than 60,000 units.
Metal, Chrome and Leather
The 2008 Ford Harley-Davidson F-Series
Super Duty draws its design theme from the special-edition 105 th
Anniversary Harley-Davidson motorcycle and its distinctive Vintage
Copper paint. A special 105 th Anniversary Harley-Davidson F-Series
Super Duty badge adorns the exterior and interior of the truck. The
unique paint options, graphic treatments and singular wheel design
work together with Super Dutys strong, distinctive looks to give
the vehicle a bold attitude that unmistakably connects the truck to
the rich history and tradition of Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
The design of the side vent and grille on the Super Duty represents
the heat stakes on a cylinder head of a Harley-Davidson V-Twin
engine, said Brad Richards, design manager, Ford Harley-Davidson
trucks. That was intentional as we wanted to thematically tie
theses trucks directly to the bikes in ways that enthusiasts would

of black monochromatic exterior paint with a custom Vintage Copper
stripe running along the beltline or a black and Vintage Copper

well, accenting specially designed leather seats. A unique
instrument cluster and one-of-a-kind 105th Anniversary badge round
out the interior.
These trucks are pure customs right from the factory, said Pat
Schiavone, design director, Ford trucks. Ive been involved with
