are pictures of Ford's 1979 Official "Pace"
Truck for the Indianapolis 500 track. These are rare
trucks today. Few are left. Ford's own 1979 product
brochure does not even mention this optional package.
Some people have sent me some pictures to share more
information and restoration help. I would be interested
in adding any pics or information you may have! Please
here for Page Two
of these trucks.
the way, if you are looking for an OEM factory roll
bar for one of these trucks, contact Keith at: firstname.lastname@example.org
photos above were sent to me courtesy of Steve M. of his
own Pace Truck. This is an excellent example, because it
still retains the original factory roll bar and Ford wheels.
two photos above were sent to me courtesy of Chuck
from TN. The interior shot is great because it shows
what looks like to be special trim on the instrument
panel and the seats. Also the special Ford steering
wheel. Thanks Chuck !)
truck has a 302 with automatic showing 74,000 miles. The
raised outline of the "Official Truck" decal
is still visible on the doors. From what I could
tell, most of the removed trim pieces and park
lamps are laying in the bed of the truck. The
tailgate has major damage as you can see in the photo."
recently purchased a 1979 Ford F150 that the previous
owner claims is an "Indy Pace Truck".
paint scheme looks different than those pictured on
your website. I've included a picture for your viewing.
Feel free to pass it around along with my e-mail address
to anyone who you think can help me. Thanks in advance.

bought this Pace Truck for only $ 300.00. It appears to
still have the factory wheels and roll bar.
S. redid his F150 Pace Truck back to new condition in 1997.
