My cousin saw this truck a couple years ago and told me about it. I finally got to see it on a HillBillyProud DVD. I wrote Keith at HillBillyProud but he didnt have any info on it. I was wondering if anybody on here knows about it. Its a early to mid 80s F-series . Any info would be appreciatted.
Thanks much Dave. Well, I eat , sleep, and breathe monster trucks. I am somewhat of a historian on them . I have always been disappointed about the lack of monster trucks from my home state. Anyway, I also am a staff member of www.monsterphotos.com , a huge monster truck site. I would love to ad pics and info to the site. Or if the owner is note interested in that, just some pics and info I can share with my monster truck friends on the onternet.
I would like all the specs if possible. History of the truck. Any special feats it did,i.e. car crushes and such. from what I saw on the video, its a cool looking truck that deserves some recognition.Thanks for taking your time to do this. I appreciatte it.
I built this truck from a 1960 State Road dump truck frame which is doubled, from a KB5 International.
The rearends are from a W26 Case loader not tempkin top loaders this has a inline punkin.
We put Detroit Lockers on both ends.
All the driveline was built from 4140 1/4 wall tubing.
Has all aluminum Ardco drop box, chain driven.
I designed the brakes on both side of the drop box with 78 ford f250 rotors and steering pump pressure for boost, wow what a set of brakes.
The drop box has 20 teeth on the input shaft and 25 teeth on the output shaft.
The steering is Char-lyn 100% power, no manual linkage.
The engine is out of 69 Lincoln Town Car which was 365 hp right out the 69 70 Blue Book.
Yes, it has the big heads C8VE.
It came out around 600 HP plus or minus what ever the roller rockers give you.
12 to one compression ratio.
Cant run anything under 112 octane or you cant shut it down.
The transmission is a C6 Ford i beefed up the clutch packs and added a quick shift kit made short tail shaft, and a 12 inch jack shaft to the drop box.
1986 Ford F250 cab and bed.
Hand cut and fitted all the aluminum around the truck, started building the truck in 2000
and first run was in 2002.
Tied up the east coast mud points in Masontown WV, I believe in March 02.
I was loosing my wife to brain cancer and could not make it to recieve the trophy.
But i did try to run it one or two times a year.
The truck weighs 11,000 lbs on digital readout scale.
All naturally asperated runs 150 ft in 5.13 seconds.
The tires are 23-1-26 extreme skidder tires.

I was just on the phone with him, using his top speed on radar, and 6500 as a top RPM on 67" tires, the overall drive ratio works out to 34 to 1 after the transmission, drop box, axle ratio and planatary gears in the hubs.
86 F250 HD 6.9 IDI ATS turbo "not exactly" stock 4x4 T19 BW1345 3.55LS both ends D60 front, 10.25" Sterling rear, ram air, dual stacks.
Thanks much! Please tell Roger thanks for the info ! I would love to find more pics of this truck to go with the awesome info if anybody has any. Tell Roger I want to ad the truck to monsterphotos.com one day. I am sorry to hear about Rogers wife. I am a cancer survivor myself, but I have lost many family members and friends due to this terrible disease.
I am looking forward to seeing the 8x10 photo of the truck !! The very short video clip is on a HillBillyProductions DVD called "Go Truck Go" which actually consists of 3 DVDs. I will watch it tonight when I get home from work and let you know where it was taken, and maybe a date and how long the clip is . Dave,thanks for taking your time and your interest in this post, and tell Roger thanks from me as well.
got some info for you and Roger. The 2nd DVD on the "Go Truck Go"DVD has"Wooley Bully" in the bonus video section. The video was shot at the Lewis County Fair in 2007 in Weston. Its a short clip about 10-20 seconds long, but impressive none the less.
