1973 Ford F-350 Ramp Truck

1973 Ford F-350 Ramp Truck

The Classic Motorsports van has seen over 200,000 miles. Realizing we can't expect it to last forever, we have kept our eyes open for other event support vehicles. Then we found this. It's a 1973 Ford F-350 ramp truck. It hadn't moved in about 10 years but we thought with some refreshing, it would suit our needs perfectly.

The only trouble was it was in Connecticut and we need it in Daytona Beach, Florida. Let the adventure begin.
