Classic Ford with Nitrous Oxide Rockets Down the Track: Truckin’ Fast Wednesday
Old school Ford F-Series gets down the track like a pro stocker with a big block Chevy V8.
This week’s Truckin’ Fast Wednesday video comes to us from the JMalcom2004 YouTube channel and it features a Ford F-Series pickup from the 1960s tearing down the quarter mile drag strip at Middle Georgia Motorsports Park. Unfortunately, it is powered by a Chevrolet engine, but is still one badass classic F-Series race truck that looks and performs like a pro stock car.
Sadly, there are no details on this truck, but the title claims that it is powered by a big block Chevrolet V8 that was built by Fulton Racing Engines. It sounds like it is naturally aspirated, with the exception of what is likely a pretty massive nitrous oxide system that we see purging before the runs.
Next, while this truck looks like a Ford F-Series pickup from 1967 or 1968, we would guess that few of the exterior panels came from a Motor Company assembly plant. The hood is obviously an aftermarket piece, but it appears as though the fenders, doors and bedside are all lightweight components and the glass has been replaced with composite materials as well.
Of course, this old Ford truck has huge Mickey Thompson drag tires out back and skinnies up front, allowing the lightweight, big block-powered pickup to get down the track in a hurry.
Tearing Down the Track
In the video above, we get to watch the Ford F-Series race truck driven by C.G. Knight make a handful of passes down the track. They are all no-time runs, but we don’t need elapsed times and trap speeds to appreciate how violently this big pickup storms down the track.
It carries the tires just a bit on the launch and dances a bit, but this old Ford gets down the track straight and fast, so crank up your speakers and enjoy!
