The Ford Cargo is a cab-over-engine lightweight truck model formerly manufactured by Ford. It was originally launched in 1981 by Ford of the United Kingdom. The Cargo was styled by Patrick Le Qument who included windows which extended down to floor level in the doors to enable drivers to see pathways in urban locations more easily when parking. The Cargo cab was very successful and was commonly seen in US Postal Service duty, and as a city tractor for freight companies such as Roadway Express. The model is still made by Brazilian, Argentinian and Venezuelan (aka Ford Trader) Ford subsidiaries, the Turkish Ford Otosan, and the Indian Ashok Leyland (Stallion). And it is also made by Freightliner Trucks and sold as the Sterling Cargo or the Freightliner Cargo in the United States. Ford now sells the Ford LCF as a smaller cab-over alternative in the US to be more competitive with similar trucks, such as the Mitsubishi Fuso Canter and Isuzu Elf (N Series).
