My bother Olley filmed this ten years ago as we were kids and having fun.....Now 30 yrs old laughing.....anyways this truck is bad to the bone....in the process of restoring it to factory style and appearance. Thanks!

Hey, just found your forum....I just purchased a 79 Official Truck last week.
It is a F150 Ranger (package line) 460, Auto, P/S, A/C. Roll Bar, Front Brush Guard.
I also have a 79 Mustang Pace Car (festival decal version) that I purchased in Sept 1979
I am just starting to gather info on this truck, as I have always wanted one to match my Mustang. The truck needs a complete restore, but at least it's all there and very minor rust issues. We are located in southern Indiana, next to Louisville KY. If anyone has any infomation not posted (ie. production numbers, options) please feel free to call me at 812-951-2210 or e-mail: csamuels@prestigeabr.com

Was this the pace truck that sold on ebay last week? If so, congrats on a great deal for a pace truck that was complete and basically original.

Yes.....
I had been looking for one on & off for several years. I bid on the one out of MN on ebay a month or so, but this one appears in better shape. I feel it was a better buy. (glad I didn't win the other one) Right now I just plan on making it a daily driver for our body shop. (to many other projects)

Ran out of money, space, and time, so if anyone is looking for two 1979 Indy Pace Trucks needing restoration, send me a PM. Both are F150's, one is a 460 and the other a 302.

Saw one on Ebay awhile ago. Would be pretty cool if you had a '79 Mustang pacecar too.

Ok, how rare is this - a 1979 F250 Indy Pace truck?!? I have one, but don't think too many others are out there. I don't think the seller knows what he has, based on the description.

[quote=indymechanic;7599379]What variety of options were available on the 1979 Indy Track Trucks? Did they come with "tilt steering wheels", "tape players", "cruise control", etc... ? Just how loaded up with options could a guy order one of these trucks? The Track Truck I have is a pretty bare bones version. I'm curious as to what was actually available when ordering a new one. Thanks in advance, indymechanic.[/quoteic
