THROWBACK VIDEO 1972 Ford Truck Races Dirt Bikes

72 ford truck motocross

This week’s Throwback video features a 1972 Ford truck ad where a little old lady races onto a motocross course to catch up with her son, who is participating in a dirt bike race. The point of the commercial was to show that the soft-riding twin I-beam suspension of the Ford truck lineup could handle the roughest course possible while still offering a smooth ride on-road, and there are few courses tougher for a full sized truck than a motocross course.

Sure, we know that in all reality, someone chasing down a dirt bike racer in a 1972 Ford truck would likely lead to serious injuries, but this commercial is entertaining enough to make for a great Throwback piece.

Unfortunately, the young man crashed while trying to talk to his mother when her 1972 Ford truck caught up to him, but the classic Ford pickup looked great when running him down.

Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
