1979 f250 pulller 600

This week’s Throwback video features a great looking 1979 Ford F-250 in a pulling competition. The video refers to this truck as a “Hot Rod Lincoln” – which I am guessing is in reference to the 460 cubic inch V8 that was evidently taken out of some Lincoln product.

With the help of some monster 37-inch mud tires, this big block Ford F-250 roars down the track in a hurry and per the comments, this F-250’s effort was enough to give it the win by some 40 feet.

If you watch the end of this video carefully, you can see that right before being given the flag to let off, the universal joints fail and come bouncing out from under the big, blue F-250. That was likely a pretty simple fix and that is a small price to pay for a 460 cubic inch big block engine that will allow you to go out and win a pulling competition with a 1979 Ford F-250.

Not surprisingly, this 460 sounds awesome under load so crank up your speakers and enjoy!
