1964 Ford Turbine Truck

Ford's 1964 Experimental Super Highway Gas Turbine Truck

Named "Big Red", Fords Gas Turbine was a towering super-transport prototype. After its debut in 1964, it made several cross-country runs at costs comparable to diesel operation. The 600 hp gas turbine engine that powered "Big Red" was developed and produced by Ford under a contract with the Deparment of Defense.
