Throwback Video: Desert Racing Ford F-150

This week’s Throwback video features an advertisement for a late 90s F-150 that calls upon the help of a purpose built off-road racing truck to show off what “Ford Tough” can mean. The video talks about the ways that a person can train to be tougher while showing the off-road racing work that helped to make the Ford F-150 tougher.

Although the Ford baja truck shown in action likely has very few components that actually went into the production version of the F-150 shown at the end of the video, Ford does and has always used motorsports as a means of pushing their vehicles and components to the limit. In this case, I would imagine that Ford used this race truck to test drivetrain components – or this is a 100% race-ready truck used simply because its fun to watch race trucks storm through the desert.

Enjoy!
