This week’s Throwback video features a gorgeous 1978 Ford F-150 that has been heavily modified with a Detroit Diesel 6v53 for pulling competitions and the result is pure awesomeness.
This video begins with a pair of quick walk around videos of this jacked up F-350, giving us a look at that stunning black and blue beast from all sides along with zooming into the passenger’s side front wheel well where we can see some of the plumbing for the high performance diesel engine.
This old school Super Duty looks great and sounds great, but after the walkaround portion of the video – we get to see this classic Ford truck in action.
With the help of the built Detroit Diesel engine, this 1978 Ford F-350 pulls the sled 242 in a hurry and unlike many other pulling trucks that are beat up, purpose built competitors – this F-350 looks like a truck that is very likely driven on the street with no problems.
Sure, that pro stock style hood scoop might be a bit much, but it only adds to the cool factor of this classic heavy duty Ford F-350.
