This 1979 Ford F-100 2WD is the Perfect Weekend Truck!

By -


Ask me about my favorite features on modern Ford pickup trucks, and I may bore you to death talking about heated steering wheels, massaging seats and panoramic sunroofs. That being said, every now and then I get the itch for a bare-bones and fun-to-drive Ford.

I’ve found such truck, and it’s in South Africa, and it belongs to long-time FTE member, Justin.Hoeben, and all I can do is look at his photos and dream about owning a truck that cool. Whether it’s the basic paint scheme of black with bright retro stripes, or the meaty off-road tires and spare tire setup, it simply screams: weekend fun.


Another reason why I love this truck is because it’s a basic rear-wheel drive. No fancy four-wheel drive, no fancy off-road suspensions, differentials, etc. Just a man, a cool truck, and lots of simply-tech mechanics. I presume this truck would be a blast to drive in the desert or some single-track trails. Should something go wrong, it’s even got a roll-bar!

Kudos to Justin on the perfect weekend truck!
