A Slick From Down South ... Way Down South
For the North American folks who love '61- 66 Ford F-series trucks, they're affectionately known as "Slicks." We made the distinction of mentioning North American because after Anibal Angrigiani of Buenos Aires, Argentina, sent us shots of his bright red '66 and informed us "Slicks" were built from '62-67 with a body style we've never seen we knew we now have to include '67 in the range of years. In addition to the very unusual "split" Unibody look of Anibal's '66 it's also interesting to note the truck is factory equipped with a 292-inch Y-block motor. Anibal says his Argentino Phase 2 Y-block engine with its four downdraft Weber carburetors and MSD ignition puts out 450 bhp at 5,700 rpm. Other features include a Dana 44 rearend with 3.54:1 gears and a four-speed close-ratio transmission. Anibal went on to say that he has owned his truck since he was 17 years old, and because of his country's weak economy it was a real struggle for him and his dad to build. We know what you mean, brother.
