RacingJunk Find: A Neato 1977 Ford Class 8100 Off Road Racing Truck

We always tell you that we’re lusting after the various vehicles we find on our normal slate of websites that sell cool stuff, but this time we really mean it. This 1977 Ford desert racing truck is priced to sell and makes us want to sell and organ to buy it. It has run the Baja 250 and 500 as well as other races in So Cal and Mexico.

Who knows if the passenger side is totally caved in, but from the one photo, the truck looks damn good. It is packing a 351 Windsor that’s backed by a C6 transmission. There’s a 9-inch axle, big off-road King shocks all around, a 22-gallon fuel cell, and suspension seats for the driver and passenger.

The cage is claimed to be “new” and is built from 2″ DOM tubing and fits the “Best in the Desert” specs for the class that this truck fits into.

We really dig the fact that this is a 2WD machine. The 4WD trucks are cool and all, but the 2WD seems more fun to us. Throwing up big rooster tails of dirt and rocks appeals to the inner idiot in us.

In our opinion, the $6,000 asking price is a steal for a turn-key rig that you could tow into the desert and thrash on this weekend if you felt like it.

Want to split it 6,000 ways?
