Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is excited to offer this 1978 Ford F250 4X4. This big red behemoth was built in Indiana by Cain Ford and has received numerous upgrades completed by its current owners. Its original 400 CID V8 has been replaced with a mammoth fire-breathing 460 CID V8, which will awaken your neighbors every time you light it off. The big 460 is backed by a 4-speed manual, with plenty of torque-handling capability to ensure smooth power delivery, and its gearing works well with the 4.10:1 gears in the Dana 60 axles. A new fuel system, including tank, pump, and lines supplies the "go juice" to the huge mill, so you won't have to worry about gumming up your 4BBL carb. The big block Ford is putting out plenty of power to run around all day on its 21/49-16.5LT Irok Super Swamper tires without feeling the least bit sluggish. Of interesting note, the tires and lift on this truck make it almost as big as the original Bigfoot, which rode on 48-inch tires (1" smaller than Big Red here does). A four-wheel disc brake upgrade makes for smooth, fade-free stops, which is an improvement over the original rear drum setup. The gray cloth interior is in great shape and provides that "factory" feel to its occupants (the main difference being the fact that you're looking out the windshield from what might seem like a second floor view)! The AM/FM/CD head unit puts out good sound and provides enough volume that you can overcome the engine/exhaust music (if you prefer to), whether you're out on the back forty pulling trees down or using the new receiver hitch under the new chrome rear bumper to tow your houseboat down to the gulf. This beast is ready for some serious off-road adventures, swamp races, or car-crushing events. For "Bigfoot" lovers who prefer red over blue (like the original was), this is your toy! The red paint looks great, and the chrome sparkles - this is a ready to rock monster truck that's not too big to find its way to the street (unlike the original Bigfoot). Don't miss out on this opportunity to get your very own monster truck - give us a call or send us an email!
