1976 Ford F-100 Off-Road Race Truck

Lot No. 2018

Auctioned on Friday, August 1, 2014

Sold for $ 41,250

This 1976 Ford F-100 was built by Charlie Haga and accomplished a Class 8 victory in the 1977 Baja 500 and Baja 1000. Haga built the truck for Frank “Scoop” Vessels in 1976; the 1977 Baja 500 was an important race to Vessels due to the introduction of BFGoodrich Radial tires for the first time in the off-road racing world. Vessels played a role in the development of the first generation of these tires and looked to benefit from this improvement. This marked the point in time where tire design for this type racer switched from agricultural use to being designed for high speeds in the desert.

The F-100 is equipped with a 404-cid Ford V-8 engine paired with an Art Carr C-6 Performance Transmission and a Chrisman rear end. The 404 engine in this truck was propane-powered when it raced. The IMPCO Company did this to demonstrate the versatility of the fuel. With the help of Don Bass, they were able to modify the 404 to utilize the different fuel. The fuel did not change density with altitude, which was a major advantage due to the extreme differences in altitude on the race courses. The vehicle is now setup to run on gasoline. Equipped with many components including Rough Country shocks, custom brakes, American Racing wheels, BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires, and F-250 spindles with knock-off hubs, this truck is not your normal F-100. This truck was displayed at the 2006 Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame where Frank ‘Scoop” Vessels was inducted for his contributions to off-road motorsports.
