8,800 RPM and 935 HP. Stock 460 block 30 over and 521ci stroker with Flow
Technologies EX514 heads and a Pro-Systems Dominator. This is the engine
break in run before we had a bed on her. This was one heck of a max effort
stock block engine and it lasted 13 hooks before the #7 rod bearing spun
and caused catastrophic damage. Also notice the 4 link rear suspension with
no leaf springs... that is riding on Air Bags! This was build 1 of 2. The
next build was much more interesting!
1979 F150 "Unveiling" Video
This is the unveiling video of the 1979 F150, which went under the
restoration project in 2006. This truck has been in the family since new,
purchased in March 1979 by my father. He and I are the ones who done the
restoration on the truck. In this video the truck is not 100% finished by
close enough to complete the video. (04/11/09)
