Red Fords

Recommended Posts

87 i believe. Started in '49 and ran it for 66 years up until this week. The 2 sons are going to keep it going.

Good run! Glad to hear that the sons will keep it going.

ok here's my other red ford a 64 856 superduty it had a 401 when new now it has a 534 5x2 trans heil dump box. tough ole truck!

I think you have a typo- that is a 1960. Total cab change in 61. The Super Duty came out in 1958 and were distinguished by an "egg crate" grill. In 59 grill was changed to horizontal bars, and the 60 was the same but had the chrome "Super Duty" script across the front of the hood. In any case if that is a current photo, nice truck for sure!

One of 3 stadium cars in an abandoned junk yard. Powered by an aluminum 215 Buick V-8. Laying since late 1960's.

Is that the aluminum V8 that eventually ended up tooled as a 3.9L in Rover products?

That is a late 1950's Class I Unlimited Hydroplane. Most at the time powered by Hot Rodded Rolls Royce, Packard or Allison V-12 Aircraft engines of 2000 or more horse power. The race on an oval course 5 to 10 at a time. These would run 100 to 125 mile per hour.

I have had 2 Red Ford L-8000 dump trucks. The first was a 1987 powered by a 3208 turbo diesel with 10 speed and the second was a 1995 with 8.3L cummins and a not so great 7 speed spicer. Both great for getting in tight places.

LN's 93" BBC Great truck. Great visibility, and as you said, great for getting into tight places
