THROWBACK VIDEO 1967 F Series Ad Shows Trucks Playing Football
This week’s Throwback video takes a look at a television ad for the 1967 Ford F Series and it calls upon the help of the 1967 Detroit Lions. This video shows the ’67 Lions working out in what looks to be little more than a big, open field and as the football players go through the various drills – so does the 1967 Ford F Series.
To show off the versatility, the handling and the ride quality of the 1967 Ford F Series with its independent I-beam suspension, we get to see the old school Ford catching a pass, hurrying through a slalom of tackling dummies and rumbling through the tires.
Finally, to show off just how capable the 1967 Ford trucks are (or were), the end of the commercial shows a team of F Series pickups running a football play – a run left to be exact. Of course, the run off of the left side of the line results in a touchdown for Ford truck #31.
The video ends by Ford bragging that the 1967 F Series “works like a truck and handles like a car”.
It is a little tacky, but it is awesome so crank up your speakers and enjoy!
