What One Feature Do You Wish Your Truck Had?
No matter whether your truck is brand new, or 50 years old, you use it every day going to work, doing work, or whatever else you use your truck for.
Back in the 1970s and 1980s, truck ads were packed full of zany stunts that allowed the automaker to show off just how much work their vehicles could do and this week’s Throwback Thursday video features a 1979 Ford F-150 ad where the bestselling half ton pickup carries the competition – literally.
The Ford Explorer is best known today for being one of the most popular models in the history of the sport utility vehicle segment, but back in the late 1970s, Explorer was a special premium upgrade package for the Ranger trimline of the Ford F-100 and F-150 pickup.
Ford didn’t make the Raptor back in the 1970s, but if it did, it might’ve looked something like the truck you see here.
This week’s Throwback Thursday takes us back to 1959, where Ford Motor Company was moving “Ford-Ward” with the 1959 Ranchero and four wheel drive full size truck.
