Sloppy the Big Red Ford is Pretty Neat
Ford didn’t make the Raptor back in the 1970s, but if it did, it might’ve looked something like the truck you see here.
True, this red desert runner is a two-wheel-drive single-cab F-250…from 1972. However, “Sloppy,” as this beast is known, has the spirit of a Raptor. It can run over almost every section of the Dubai sand dunes – and there are a lot of those. All it needs is plenty of gas and steering corrections.
Of course, Sloppy itself has plenty to offer. It’s got a 302 cubic-inch V8 under its hood, front-to-back tubing, coilover shocks with miles of travel, a nine-inch rear end, and meaty 35-inch tires.
You can watch Sloppy use all of those parts to make a mess in the Middle East – and get out of one – by clicking the play button below.
