section is made possible by Dean, who has collected just
about everything you can think of on the 1979 Ford F150
Pace Trucks. He is even restoring one of his own. In Dean's
got quite a bit of literature on these trucks including
one of the original press packages, factory photos , a couple
sets of never applied , original door decals and a couple
of very original complete trucks. I drive one of them every
day. I've also got a few photos of trucks I've found suffering
in scrap yards over the years."
two pics are of my daily driver Indy truck. It's a low milage
302 but it has been crashed hard on the drivers side and the previous
owner did a bad job repairing it. He didn't put the decals back
so only a purist would know this truck is the real deal. The pic
of it on my 72 Chevy hauler was just a test fit to see how the
hauler would handle a heavy load.
of my trucks have the unique interior, wheels etc ... Neither
one of them still has the roll bar ( that's OK by me ) but my
driver still has the original front push bar which is even more
very interesting thing about the decals. They were NOT applied
at the factory. They were shipped in a cardboard box ( like
the one in another pic ) and made the journey to the dealer
simply laying in the seat of the pickups. The dealer then
applied the decals IF the customer wanted them on the truck.
Many customers had no such interest and many of these trucks
were sold without door decals. The larger body side decals
were applied on the assembly line.
With respect to the black and silver with red trim interior.
ALL Indy F-150's had this interior but it WAS NOT unique
to the Indy truck. This interior trim package was also found
in the 77-79 " Free Wheelin" packages. The roll
bar , push bar , black bumpers, black mirrors , steering
wheel and 10 hole wheels were also shared with the Free
Wheelin trucks. "
special thanks to Dean for all this information !
