first pickup truck?
 
should be an easy search...
What was the first manufactured pickup truck? What was the name and year?

awww you all let me down...

"The first factory-produced pickup was a Ford Model T Runabout with a cargo bed in the rear. Although it debuted in April 1925, many Model Ts had already been converted by owners to pickup truck use by 1918.
The 1925 Ford pickup truck featured an L-head, 4-cylinder engine that generated 20 horsepower on a 100-inch wheelbase. "
