i worked on some of their superdutys a while back. they brought it in with prerunner on a trailer. im not sure who the man is that dropped the stuff off, but he said it was nothing special, just one of jimmy smiths old prerunners. it was a f-150 or a bronco (cant remember) that i would kill to have, and to them it was just an old beater. man, i need to start making millions. maybe ill start putting up gas stations like they did. i could call it Wonderful Erik's.
Offroad did a full d=feature on the two prerunners built for the Herbsts while they were still running the buggies and had the trucks built. Custom I beam front and 4 linked rear. They were some of the first Prerunners built with rider comfort in mind, AC, GPS, etc... I used to see one of them cruising around Nuevo a few years ago. nice Ford platforms with Chevy bodies.
To my knowledge, Terrible Herbst Motorsports receives no support from Ford. However, as shown in several of the photos, the prerunners (as well as the race vehicles) have carried the Ford Oval and Ford Trucks logo in past years to support/promote Ford products.
Isn't that an F150 chassied Bronco? just curious. I thought (I have a pic anyway) of the bronco when Smith had it prerunning down in Mex and it wasn't lengthened. Maybe I am wrong, was there some work done to it after '95?
Its a stretched Bronco, F150 Chassis with a modified Bronco Cab. Its a very good concept because it takes the problem out of normal bronco prerunners that are always seem to short to go through the deep whoops.
What I meant to say was that Russ built it that length from the beggining. It doesn't really use an F-150 chassis, since there are no stock frame rails in the front or back. It has a really cool sway bar set-up in the back. Robby used it to pre-run the 1000 one year.
