international that I built and raced in the late 80's
427 M.R. c-6, 8" conv. 457 gears Tunnel Wedge, big Roller etc
Didn't that run at the HAMB drags last year?
Ron's Ranchero may not be a "truck" in the truest sense of the word, but running 11's at 4000 pounds makes it badass enough to be here! Besides, he's owned it longer than a lot fellows on here have been alive.
Didn't know what the front looked like, I've seen the rear way too many times!
Ive seen this thing run .not just a show car.
You're toooo kind Uncle Bill, look forward to seeing you guys at The Thaw !
Here's Charlie R's 48 Chevy...
This is too cool! Any more pictures?
Why is she apart?
A real survivor and the story behind it:
I decided for some unknown reason that it should be beautiful, and it's been in bodywork purgatory ever since! I really wish now that I'd have at least just run it for a couple years all banged up....it would still have been a blast, but...patience IS a virtue. I hope I won't have to go through the motor again by then! Man, this thing has been a journey....$$$/time= MORE $$$/time...But, I keep learning more, and my expectations keep going up, and so the bar does, too, ya know? Hey Frankenstein, I have more pics on my profile album, and a couple vids on youtube, too, but there is a build thread on here also, that I never update!
yes, i know..it's not h.a.m.b friendly.
here's our junk...( 5/8 scale 55 truck)
small block .14-71 -on 70% nitro . dual 44 amp mags..etc.
That does not matter, it's the fastest truck on the block !!!
Okay "swade41" posted a picture but I'll just elaborate on it a tad.....
I know Phil (Swade41) posted a pic of the truck already, and Waddayacare posted a video... but i cant help it, i love the truck, AND, my dad Owns/Drives it!!! So i get to help out in the pits with it. haha Here's another recent pic of the Ron Bizio AA/GS 33 Willys PU.
Thanks for the awesome pics everyone! GREAT THREAD! I'll see what else i can dig up in the archives...
Another pic of one of my favorite drag trucks...
Okay so maybe I'm biased just a bit 'cause I know Jeff but this IS not only the best looking pickup but the best looking '33 Willys out there!
AND.... They use it!
Steve is that the "new" one from Joey O ?
Phil, Oh you heard? Man word travels fast... haha Still one of my favorite trucks tough... haha
Heres one for the 48-50 Ford guys
"Heres one for the 48-50 Ford guys"
Ah. "Pricilla" what a crowd pleaser regardless of whether you're a 48-50 Ford guy!
Wow, some awesome drag trucks. Great thread.
Late sixtie's. Mission B.C..
