This week’s Throwback video features a 1972 Ford F-100 blasting through a series of obstacles made from dirt and rock. This footage comes from Argentina and I don’t speak any Spanish, so I honestly don’t have any idea what is being said – but you don’t need to even hear the commercial to appreciate the antics of this clip.

The 1972 Ford F-100 starts off by bouncing over some smaller dirt bumps, but they quickly grow into larger pikes of dirt and rocks, forcing the suspension system of the old school Ford truck to handle those severe conditions.

As the jumps get bigger, so does the amount of air under the F-100, but the suspension handles the landing each and every time. While most Ford owners back in 1972 probably didn’t do much jumping, this commercial shows that the Ford F-100 is up to the task.

Enjoy!
