FOXX HUNT!

Just finished watching "Smokey And The Bandit" for about the millionth time and it got me wondering: whatever happened to the "Foxx Hunt" F150 4x4?

Has someone kept it and restored it? Are there any clones out there? And was it a '76 or a '77? Anyone know anything about it? It was my favorite 4x4 of the era and still is...

Don't know whatever happened to it but yesterday in Redwood City I spotted a 1977 Pontiac Trans Am in good condition although it was white. Reminded me of the movie sort of.

A little off topic I know but I do like old TA's and Firebirds too. BTW we still need to get together here in the Bay Area sometime with our dents.

I've wondered this myself. I'd be interested in seeing if it's still out there. I have the same truck that needs a paint job. The thought has crossed my mind more than once.


........Hmmmm.

I was just playing with my HD DVD of it. It looks like a '77 F-250 Ranger. It was stock suspension with a 3" body lift and had a Ramsey winch mounted on the front bumper. It had clearance lights on the top of the cab. The rear bumper was a chrome step bumper with polished diamond plate mounted to cover the gap in the back left by the body lift. Looks like around 33" tires on it. The rollbar was fabbed. I've never seen one like it before or since that truck. It had two round 8" Hyliters on it and two rectangle lights mounted outside of those. It had three chrome tie down "T" hooks down each side of the bed. It even had the same wheels as my truck. It would be a cool ride, but I'm missing alot of expensive trim since my truck is only an F-150 Custom.

I hope this was helpful to you.

Thanks for the picture! See? I was right about most of the stuff. It only got a few seconds of air time in the movie and none of them were very good shots. It's amazing how many people (like me) knew the name instantly and recognize the truck from that.

if I recall correctly this truck had a divorced transfer case in the movie so aside from paint it was a regular highboy.

I saw a replica of it at a car show about two years ago in South Georgia. The rims were different, and it didn't have a body lift at all, but otherwise it was pretty dead on. I never got to talk to the owner.
