1977 F-150 Does Donuts in the Grass: Freaky-Ford Friday
Classic Ford truck plays in the dirt without getting muddy.
This week’s “Freaky Friday” video comes to us from the Scott E YouTube channel and it features a 1977 Ford F-150 racing around in a grassy wooded area. While the off-roading footage is great, there really isn’t any mud. But the clip does showcase a great-looking classic Ford half-ton pickup slinging grass and dirt as the driver does big donuts.
Clean 1977 F-150
There are no details on this 1977 Ford F-150, but it looks to be a pretty clean truck for its age. It sounds like it is powered by something other than a V8, so it is likely packing the 300-cubic inch straight-six engine with 117 stock horsepower. It is louder than it would have been stock, so it might be making a little more power than stock, but this F-150 lacks the big V8 power that we usually feature. Fortunately, that doesn’t stop the old school pickup from doing solid donuts on the deep grass.
The video title calls this footage dirt drifting and while there is some dirt, the classic F-150 is really grass drifting while occasionally digging down into the dirt. However, semantics aside, the driver and has old school Ford truck do a great job of maintaining the continuous drift in a big circle. For the better part of a minute, the half-ton Ford slides its way around the bush in the middle of the circle with the roar of the six-cylinder engine.
The footage ends with the driver getting a little too much angle, spinning the truck around and forcing the driver to climb slowly out of the deep grass.
Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
