Ford L-Series (Louisville Line)

Series

The Ford L-Series trucks are a range of heavy-duty trucks that were built by Ford between 1970 and 1998. The first dedicated Class 8 truck produced by the company, the L-Series range replaced the N-Series short conventional (derived from the F-Series). The Louisville Line encompassed a wide range of models through the Class 7-8 GVWR ratings and for medium-duty, severe-service, and vocational applications; many were produced as semitractors. The line would become one of the most popular series of trucks Ford ever produced.

In 1996 FORD sold their heavy (class 7 & 8) division to Freightliner. They continued to build/sell trucks until 1998 under the Sterling name at the same time as Freightliner.
