What's the deal with this truck?
It's vintage, through and through. It can be a little cranky, but a quick primer will tell you most of what you need to know. It's automatic and actually very easy to drive, though it's gigantic and you'll want to take extra care piloting it around. In short, it's not like a sports car and very unlike your daily driver. But it's a load of fun and beautiful to look at. Perfect as a prop or for a live shoot.
$200 per day?!? You're crazy.
Supply and demand. There are few of these trucks even on the road, much less available to rent from people.
We don't need the money, but know that trucks like ours are vital for Austin's creative industry. We price it prohibitively to ensure we deal only with people who will appreciate the love and care it takes to keep gems like this on the road, much less available for people to use for films, shoots, and other creative pursuits.
What's the history of the truck?
Born in 1972 at the Ford plant in Milpitas, California (sadly now a shopping mall), the truck spent all its life on the west coast until 2016. It had the same owner since 1974, and the loving care he showed for it is evident everywhere. Unlike many trucks this vintage, nearly everything is stock or original replacement parts.
What's wrong with it?
A vehicle this old comes with its challenges. But most of them are pretty easy to live with:
• No radio (it just doesn't work)
• No outlets to plug your phone, etc. into
• No power windows. Roll 'em, baby.
Beyond these minor annoyances, everything else works great. It drives nicely with power steering, power brakes, and an automatic transmission on the column. If you can drive anything automatic, you can drive this.
